  • Forget any other MIDI wireless system you may have tried in the past, this system really works! You get no dropouts and no note hangs. We are so confident that you will be impressed by MidiStream, that if you buy directly from us we promise your satisfaction guaranteed or your money back. (See foot of page, conditions apply)

    MidiStream is primarily intended to be used in a live gig situation where it can free the live performer from the constraints of a MIDI cable. It is ideal for use with a portable keyboard such as the AX-1 or AX-7, or for use with electronic wind controllers such as the WX-5 WX-7 or indeed an portable MIDI instrument, electronic drums, accordion etc. Another ideal application is to link a front-of-house MIDI sound or lighting desk to on-stage equipment.

    A MidiStream rack mounting kit is available

    MidiStream has been designed specifically to address the problems unique to MIDI data transfer. It combines a high data rate with imperceptible latency and low dropout rate. Should dropouts occur due to going out of range or interference from other sources, MidiStream is designed to handle these events without leaving notes stuck on.

    The transmitter is a cigarette packet sized unit, with a small aerial, an on-off switch, a MIDI input socket and is powered from a 9 volt battery. The receiver is a free standing diversity unit (two aerials to maximise reception) and is powered from the mains via a small plug-top power supply. It has 4 status LEDs, an on-off switch and a MIDI out socket. The whole system has imperceptible latency. Range is at least 80 metres (260 feet) outdoors in ideal conditions, or at least 30 metres indoors. The UK/EU version works on a data-only frequency which will not interfere with radio microphones.

    Operation couldn't be simpler. Just turn everything on, plug your portable instrument into the MIDI IN of the transmitter, and the MIDI appears at the MIDI out socket of the receiver ready to connect to your sound modules, laptop, rack etc.

    MidiStream handles ALL MIDI data on ALL MIDI channels, including clock, sysex etc., so whatever MIDI you put into the MIDI In of the transmitter pack, appears at the MIDI Out of the receiver unit. It even warns you of a low battery in the transmitter unit by blinking an LED on both the transmitter and the receiver.

    People have asked why the UHF band was chosen over Bluetooth. Simply put, we found the UHF band to be superior. We started out by developing both systems, but abandoned the Bluetooth system due to its high latency and other performance problems.

    We're so confident that you'll be impressed by MidiStream that we are offering a 7 days money back guarantee if it fails to meet your requirements.

    This offer is only valid on systems which have been bought directly from Kenton, and obviously the system must be returned to us unmarked and in the original packaging. Offer does not apply to US frequency (914.5MHz) MidiStream systems as these are built to order only.
