  • Yamaha MD-BT01 compatibly

    Hi all,

    I have a Yamaha MD-BT01 Bluetooth midi adapter that I cannot get to work with the Blackbox. It does not light up if I use the provided TRS to midi cables. Have anyone of you got any experience with it and the Blackbox?

    I had hoped to use it to bring the power of Bluetooth midi to my Blackbox :-)

    I have not used this particular adapter but I do own a CME WIDIBUD and it is fantastic! it is the most reliable way to connect my Roli gear directly to my blackbox - wirelessly!

      it looks like that adapter is powered from the host MIDI port. You won't get power over our TRS MIDI adapters.

        It works fine with my Arturia MicroFreak, and that is through TRS mini jack, just with type A TRS to 5 pin midi adapters. I think it get’s power from the midi signal itself? I think the standard is that just 2 of the 5 cables in a normal 5 pin midi cable is used. Could be wrong ... not an expert :-)
