Using BTLE MIDI with non-iOS devices?

This might be more of a hardware compatibility question than a software one, but has anyone tried connecting a Sensel with non-iOS Bluetooth MIDI hardware like the Quicco Sound Bluetooth to CV module?

Both the Sensel and the Quicco expect the other device (with a screen) to establish the connection, so I don’t see an obvious way to set that up. Could you use an iOS device to bridge the two together?

@Dewb Thanks for reaching out. We’re not sure if there is a way around both devices needing the other to initiate the Bluetooth connection. However, there might be apps on the iPad that are worth trying, such as

The Quicco is only able to slave to a MIDI host. The CME WIDI Master can act as both host and slave, but needs a powered MIDI DIN-6 port. The forthcoming WIDI Jack will connect to modular equipment as it supports both 5v and 3.3v MIDI, and can be powered via USB-C. It’s available on pre-order at a discount right now. If that doesn’t work for you, the WIDI Host CME is working on should do the trick, but it’s coming after the WIDI Jack. CME has a reputation for producing good MIDI interfaces; I recommend them.


This is great to know! Thanks @StuZog!
