This is great for wirless midi from my EWI4000s to my iPad Mini3. Very small latency if any at all. Not noticable to me when I play. Pros: - Wireless freedom! - Only $50 - Handles all the high capacity of CC Midi that my EWI can throw at it
Neutral: - When my batteries run low, the first indication is that the midi drops out - SampleTank tries to cut off everything that isn't iRig brand > IK Multimedia is self defeating with their restriction attempts; I will not touch their otherwise good products since their registration controls everything you do. > To get around this just start up any other app that has midi bluetooth, and keep it running in the background. I use Cubasis or Midiflow or Korg or Polychord - anything from another company
Cons: - The plugs stick out the back of the EWI like a 1/4" cable does; this has not been a problem and is better than the cables. However I am concerned that...
Using this UD-BT01 with a Yamaha DGX-660 and iPad mini 2. At first, plugged in to USB-to-Host jack with included usb cable, plugged in to spare AppleiPhone usb charger for power. Tried connecting through stock Bluetooth settings, but could not see device to connect to. Repeated with two other Apple devices, but same problem. Could not see the device. I saw JimE say he used MidiMittr from AppStore to connect, so I downloaded the app, and it saw the UD-BT01 and connected. Now we are able to use the iPad mini 2 with our music learning apps, Piano Adventures. We also tried some Yamaha apps and they worked fine with excellent two way midi communications. We did not detect any lag.
Update:11/26/2016 Found the Yamaha FAQ which tells you to install the Yamaha Visual Performer app and use that to connect to the UB-BT01, then the other MIDI apps will see it on your iPhone and iPad. [...] And a good assortment of Yamaha apps available too.
Technically this works which is great. The latency is problematic. It is essentially unusable if you need any amount of precision with your timing. I have it two stars instead of one because for many uses this wouldn't be an issue. If you are using hardware to control a software synth or drum machine then just don't do it.
