Developer Sebastian Dittmann (Audiobus) lets us know about a new gadget that adds Bluetooth Wireless MIDI support to your electronic music gear, the mi.1.
In other words, attach these onto the back of your new or vintage MIDI gear, and you’ve added Wireless MIDI capabilities.
“The guys from Quicco Sound just posted the first public screenshot thingy of their new Bluetooth Low Energy to MIDI adapter,” notes Dittman. The mi.1 “connects to your synth’s MIDI in and out ports and transmits it via Bluetooth Low Energy. This little gadget could be a really great tool, bringing together mobile devices and synth hardware.”
Dittmann adds that he’s not involved with the project, but thought it’s cool.
The developers, Quicco Sound, have launched an IndieGoGo project to fund the mi.1 Bluetooth Wireless MDI connector. Here’s the official intro video:
The mi.1 is available via the IndieGoGo campaign for US $35. The developers expect to ship starting in August. Pricing will be $45 after that.
