WIDI Uhost

Advanced Wireless MIDI

Ultra-low latency premium Bluetooth MIDI

What is WIDI Uhost?

WIDI Uhost is your Bluetooth MIDI Interface + USB host.
Add Bluetooth MIDI to your class compliant MIDI controllers, instruments and computers via USB.
Enjoy ultra-low 3ms latency and secure connectivity via Adaptive Frequency Hopping.

Smart Connectivity Algorithms

Latency is not an issue with WIDI.
WIDI distinguishes itself from any other Bluetooth MIDI technology available through its unique SCA technology.
SCA is a collection of highly effective algorithms that optimize performance and minimize interference.

Latency is reduced to an inaudible 3ms as measured between 2 WIDI devices.
MIDI transmits data at a standard rate of 31.25 kbps via cable. WIDI products go up to 400 kbps.

Plug, pair & play

Transmit and receive Bluetooth MIDI via the USB port of your MIDI device or computer.

Bluetooth 5

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

Former 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.
