Does the Widi Bud work with other Bluetooth midi devices such as the Yamaha MD-BT 01 or the mi.1 by Quicco Sound in Windows 10?

Dear Lakec, the origianl firmware had some issues with Mi.1 and Yamaha, but we updated a new firmware and we are testing it now, hopefully we can release it in about 1 week, then they will work together perfectly.August 9, 2016 at 7:52 am #28130
Thanks for the good news. So this is software update you’re talking about, correct?August 9, 2016 at 9:49 am #28131
Yes, you can use WIDI Plus software to update your WIDI BUD for free.August 10, 2016 at 7:58 am #28132
Thanks again, Zhao. PLease let us know once you are done with your test. As soon as I hear from you, I am going to place an order for one or two Widi Buds.August 10, 2016 at 3:37 pm #28133
Hi Lakec, we are sure the new firmware works with Mi.1 well, we are testing it to see whether there is any small bug, then we will release the new version around next week.August 12, 2016 at 5:29 am #28138
Thanks for the assurance. I will go ahead and get one. Please let me know when you have the update.August 17, 2016 at 5:59 am #28143
I placed an order for my WIDI Bud. Are you finished with your tests and the new firmware yet?August 17, 2016 at 4:21 pm #28145
Sorry, we are still waiting for the test result from more testers, so far everything is good.
If you cannot wait, you can try our beta firmware too, you need a special WIDI PLUS version to update your WIDI BUD, please download it below:
> Widiplus for Windows that allows to program beta fw
After we release the new firmware, please go back to use the normal WIDI PLUS version which you can download from our website.
Please let me know if you find any problem. Thanks!August 17, 2016 at 5:37 pm #28146
Thanks for the link. It will be a few days before I receive my WIDI Bud in the mail. I will check back with you when I recive the unit. Thanks again.August 18, 2016 at 4:30 am #28147
Ok. Thanks!August 20, 2016 at 1:16 am #28149
I am trying out the beta version. The second I begin to send just a little bit of cc#11 messages (expression), WIDI Bud chokes and there is severe delay.August 20, 2016 at 1:20 am #28150
I might add that the WIDI Bud pairs just fine with my mi.1, and the mi.1 has no problem dealing with lots of midi data when it is connected to my iPad. Also no problem when the mi.1 is connected to my Windows PC through the iPad using an IOS app. By the way, I am using Windows 10 Surface Pro.August 20, 2016 at 10:20 am #28151
Which device you used to send CC#11 to WIDI BUD? I tried WIDI BUD with Xkey Air 25 and send a lot of CC#11 or pitchbend (more data than CC), it worked fine without any delay. I am using Windows 8.1.August 20, 2016 at 11:00 am #28153
I was using the Korg Microkey Arranger as the controller and the mi.1 Are you doing your test with the mi.1? See that was my orgignal quesiton if the Widi Bud works with other Bluetooth midi devices such as the mi.1 I found out that I don’t have to use cc#11 messages to cause severe latency or even hanging notes, just playing notes will do that. . The mi.1 works great with the iPad, and even when a PC receives midi from the mi.1 through the iPad. I am using Windows 10 Anniversary update and MS Surface Pro. Later, I will try on a differnt PC.
