Add wireless Bluetooth BLE MIDI to standard MIDI devices
WIDIFLEX is a set of two MIDI DIN plugs, with all Bluetooth functionality built into the larger plug that connects to your gear's MIDI Out socket. You won't even need to worry about external power: WIDIFLEX is powered from your gear's MIDI Out socket!
Plug in and go: All you need to do is to plug WIDIFLEX into your MIDI gear's MIDI DIN sockets. The large plug goes into the devices's MIDI Out, the small detachable one into the MIDI In.
For a direct MIDI-to-MIDI connection, simply plug a second WIDIFLEX set into the gear you want to connect with. Automatic Pairing will auto-connect both devices, and you are good to go with full bi-directional transmission of all MIDI data, including MIDI Clock and MPE.
Widiflex MIDI Bluetooth
For a Computer-to-MIDI connection with current Mac OS computers or iOS, you can pair WIDIFLEX with their built-in Bluetooth right away. On Windows, you might need to add a WIDIFLEX USB: Once plugged in, it auto-connnects to your WIDIFLEX, and the new MIDI port becomes visible in your DAW.
Bluetooth (BLE) to MIDI connections are also supported. So with WIDIFLEX, you can pair bluetooth MIDI controllers with your stage piano or synthesizer and play them from the front of the stage!
Bluetooth MIDI Controller WIDIFLEX
Connect up to 5 WIDI devices: But WIDIFLEX can do a lot more than just provide one wireless MIDI connection via Bluetooth: Create multiple fixed pairs and also WIDI groups of up to 5 devices, as shown further below.
Create WIDI groups
Set up WIDI groups of up to 5 Bluetooth MIDI devices with one central WIDI device and up to 4 peripherals over 16 MIDI channels. You can easily do this via the free WIDI app for iOS and Android, or with the group auto-learn mode. The WIDI app also lets you store setups for instant recall.
WIDIFLEX Fixed pair
Create fixed pairs
You can create fixed pairs when working with multiple wirless MIDI connections at once, and run multiple groups with automatic pairing from default memory.
So when you plug your WIDI units back in, these connections will be restored automatically every time.
The current WIDI products are Bluetooth 5 compatible and comply with the specification for MIDI over Bluetooth by the MMA. The specification for MIDI over Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE-MIDI) is based on Apple's implementation (released in iOS 8 and OS X 10.10), so that products from early adopters remain compatible with the industry standard.
WIDI includes a collection of smart algorithms like Adaptive Frequency Hopping to always optimize the performance by selecting the best performing frequency at a given distance between devices. With only 3 ms, the latency between connected WIDI products is extremely low: MIDI only transmits data at a standard speed 31.25 kbit per second via cable - and WIDI products using Bluetooth 5 go up to 400 kb/sec.
WIDI products are 100% MIDI compatible and transmit all MIDI messages over Bluetooth, including MIDI clock, long SysEX and MPE. They provide full bidirectional transmission and reception with dual role automation as both, central and peripheral.
