At the 2016 NAMM Show, Yamaha introduced a couple of new adapters that are designed to let you connect your MIDI gear wirelessly via Bluetooth to devices up to 10 meters away.
Yamaha’s Nate Tschetter gave us a quick overview at the Winter NAMM Show.
- The UD-BT01 adapter lets you connect devices with a USB TO HOST terminal to iOS devices and Mac.
- The MD-BT01 adapter lets you connect instruments with MIDI IN/OUT terminals to iOS devices and Macs
The adapters let you wirelessly connect your iOS devices (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch) or Mac to your instrument with Bluetooth and avoid having to reconnect every time you play.
The adapters each have a street price of about US $50.
