Out of sight, out of mind
The WIDI Jack gives you one less thing to worry about. Not only does it dilute your set-up, it allows you to focus on what's most important, making and performing excellent music. This premium adapter allows you to create music wherever you like, however you like. Thanks to its compact size, the WIDI Jack offers maximum aesthetic appeal and will look particularly great in filmed sessions and live performances where subtly is desirable. Once you've experienced the joys of working wirelessly that CME provides you'll never want to go back to clunky, wired set-ups again!
Synths, guitar pedals, MIDI controllers, Apple, Android and Windows operating systems. The list of devices compatible with the WIDI Jack appears seemingly infinite! Below are a few ways that the device can be integrated into your system.
- MIDI to MIDI: This allows you to connect two standalone MIDI hardware devices by using two WIDI Jacks, or mixed with a WIDI Master(please note, the second is not included).
- Bluetooth(BLE) to MIDI: This allows you to pair your Bluetooth MIDI controller with any standalone MIDI hardware device via one WIDI Jack.
- MacOS/iOS BLE to MIDI: This allows you to play your standalone MIDI hardware and connect it with your iOS device or Apple computer with one WIDI Jack using smart auto switch mode
Additional connectivity possibilities
Expanding on the WIDI Master, the Jack provides additional forms of connectivity to enhance your set-up.
- Connect to MIDI devices using the mini jack MIDI (2.5mm or 3.5mm (1/8") and Type-A/Type-B).
- Connect to devices that only feature a MIDI IN by using the external USB-C power supply port featured on the WIDI Jack.
- Connect to MIDI devices that only feature DIN-6-mini MIDI.
- Connect to MIDI devices using unpowered 5-PIN DIN MIDI via the USB-C external power supply port featured on the WIDI Jack.
- For advanced wireless connectivity you'll be able to integrate up to five WIDI devices within a wireless group. You'll be able to achieve bidirectional transmission by using one central master and up to four peripherals
Stand out from the crowd
Unlike most Bluetooth devices, the WIDI master in a league of its own. The inclusion of innovative SCA technology provides unparalleled performance. These algorithms enhance the abilities of the adapter to deliver both premium and consistent results at all times.

"I was lucky enough to be able to start working with a pair of prototype WIDI adapters from CME. They worked flawlessly and transparently. For example, I immediately had our flagship synthesizer, the Moog ONE, controlling and being controlled by our older MIDI instruments and vintage MIDI controllers." - Cyril Lance (CTO, MOOG Music)
"I have tested WIDI and found it to be well-designed, fast, easy to use and low-cost. Interestingly, CME have figured out how to get the latency down to as low as 3 ms, which is quite an accomplishment. In my test playing 3-note chords and melody with 3D MPE expression, I didn't perceive any added latency or delays normally associated with Bluetooth." - Roger Linn (CEO, RogerLinn Design)
