100% BLE MIDI for Class Compliant USB MIDI devices

When using WIDI Uhost as a USB host, it supports most plug-and-play ”class compliant" standard USB MIDI devices.
If your USB MIDI device matches one of the following conditions, it will not be compatible with WIDI Uhost:


1. USB devices that require the installation of special drivers are not supported.

2. USB devices that include USB hub functions are not supported.

3. USB devices with multiple MIDI ports will only function on the first USB MIDI port.

4. "Combined Device Class" USB port (Audio + MIDI via 1 single USB port) needs WIDI USB firmware v1.6 or higher!

What industry leaders say about us

I was lucky enough to be able to start working with a pair of prototype WIDI adapters from CME. They worked flawlessly and transparently. For example, I immediately had our flagship synthesizer, the Moog ONE, controlling and being controlled by our older MIDI instruments and vintage MIDI controllers.

Moog Music

CYRIL LANCE

CTO MOOG Music

CME's WIDI is the first Bluetooth MIDI adapter that can perform as both a “peripheral” or “central” device, allowing fast, low-latency, and stable point-to-point wireless connections between any two devices.

MMA

TOM WHITE

Former President of MMA

I (Roger) have tested WIDI and found it to be well-designed, fast, easy to use and low-cost. Interestingly, CME have figured out how to get the latency down to as low as 3 ms, which is quite an accomplishment. In my test playing 3-note chords and melody with 3D MPE expression, I didn't perceive any added latency or delays normally associated with Bluetooth.
