Developer Samuele Cornell let us know about a new project that he’s developed, an open source DIN MIDI to Bluetooth MIDI adapter.
It’s an Arduino-compatible board that enables conversion between conventional MIDI through 5-PIN DIN cables and MIDI over Bluetooth Low Energy.
The adapter could be used to add Bluetooth MIDI support to a vintage synthesizer or to a Windows or Linux machine. (Macs support Bluetooth over MIDI out of the box).
- It offers bi-directional communication and supports also SysEx messages.
- It can be used also to add BLE-MIDI capability on a Windows/Linux machine.
- The project is open source and it is available on Github.
