Wireless MIDI enables connection between instruments and iPhone, iPad and Mac.

Yamaha has introduced Wireless MIDI at NAMM 2016, offering musicians the freedom of mobile connectivity between instruments and iPhone, iPad and Mac.

The MIDI data is transmitted via Bluetooth LE (Low Energy). This protocol is supported by Apple iOS 9.2 or newer and Mac OS 10.10 (Yosemite) or newer.

To connect every digital instrument in your home, Yamaha has also introduced two Wireless MIDI adaptors – the US- BT01 for instruments featuring a USB port and the MD-BT01, suitable even for older instruments with a classic standard MIDI port.

Wireless MIDI data transmission, says Yamaha, enables easy interaction between your instrument and iOS apps. The UD-BT01 connects to the USB-To-Host port of the instrument. Any USB power adaptor can be used to supply the device with electricity.

Meanwhile, the MD-BT01 is connected to the MIDI interface of the instrument. Once the hardware is connected, users simply need select the Bluetooth MIDI Adaptor as MIDI port in the settings of the app. The data connection is established immediately.

Both Yamaha Wireless MIDI adaptors can be used with every app that supports Bluetooth MIDI on Apple iPhone, iPad or Mac.
