  1. Hello. Is it possible to configure communication in both directions to a MIDI device? I am using a UD-BT01 and have no problem setting up MIDIberry and loopMIDI to communicate either from my PC to the MIDI device or from the MIDI device to my PC. However, I need it to work in both directions and MIDIberry does not seem to support this and Windows won’t let me open up multiple instances of MIDIberry. Thanks for any help with this!

    1. MIDIberry supports only one direction.
      If you want to configure communication in both direction,
      use MIDIberry and WindSYNTHberry with loopMIDI.

      Download WindSYNTHberry

      – UD-BT01 to loopMIDI
      – loopMIDI to UD-BT01

      Please tell me what you use MIDI device and software.

      Thank you!

      1. I am using a Fractal Audio AX8 guitar pedalboard which has editing software called AX8-Edit that communicates over USB using MIDI SysEx. Would you expect that to work setting it up like you described?

        My first attempt with using MIDIberry and WindSYNTHberry as you described didn’t work but I didn’t have a lot of time to troubleshoot in case I messed up one of the settings. It seemed like some of the SysEx messages weren’t making it to or from the device.

        1. If you do not succeed in the way presented, try the reverse order.

          – UD-BT01 to loopMIDI
          – loopMIDI to UD-BT01

  2. I came up with the following matters.

    Please create 2 ports on loopMIDI, for IN and OUT separately.
    Please check the setting of your hardware, MIDI Merge OFF, Local OFF.
    Please be careful not to loop MIDI signal.

  3. I was able to successfully use this method with standalone synths as well. Have tried with Kontakt 5, Korg M1, as well as Cakewalk Rapture.

    I am finding that the latency is a little bit high. I wonder if there is anything you can do to speed the code up? Especially when you are mapping MIDI CC…. its better when you don’t have to do any mapping.

    My setup is Yamaha WX-5, Intel i7, 16 GB Ram, Audient ID ASIO, Yamaha MD-BT01

    Good Job!

    I look forward to any enhancements you

  4. Hi,

    First of all, thank you for this app.

    In my case I got an issue routing the MIDI out. Everything seems to be working fine inside MIDIberry. I can see the notes being displayed in the MIDI Monitor and even I can hear the piano if I choose Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth as MIDI out but as soon as I select loopMIDI as output and then loopMIDI as input in my DAW (Reaper x64) or MIDI-OX no MIDI input activity is detected in these programs.

    Do you know could I solve it?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi, Alex

      I also downloaded Reaper and tried it, but it works without problems. First of all, please do not minimize MIDIberry’s window.
      If it does not work please try installing MIDIberry and loopmidi again.

  5. Suggestion? can you make windsynthberry translate cc 2 to aftertouch? I find that works better (generally) than expression or volume..

    thanks in advance.

    1. WindSYNTHberry 1.0.4 released!
      It can translate cc 2 to aftertouch.
      Please tell me if there is any problem

  6. 1.0.4 is great! the cc2 to aftertouch works great with patchman’s patches for the M1! now the standalone M1 doesn’t need midi-ox any more which really helps the latency. good job…

    it just seems to get more useful… you going to offer a paid version rather than the adware version? just an idea.

    Phil Kemp

    1. I will consider paid applications in future versions.
      How much would you pay for this? 🙂

      1. I think no more than $10….25$ seems way too high and the value is more then 2-5$ IMHO…


  7. Not sure what I am doing wrong but I cannot even get WindSynthberry to respond, I am not able to click on any options or bring out the side menu. I have a feeling it is simply locking up when starting it even though it does display the Midi devices I have connected. I am running the latest version from the store on Windows 10 x64 Pro, Ver. 1703, OS Build 15063296 on Dev Preview.

    Would really like to get this working but am stuck as the app simply does not respond to any mouse clicks etc.


    1. Please delete the Bluetooth device and try pairing with Bluetooth once.
      Or, please delete and reinstall the application once.

      1. Hi,

        I have tried that multiple times. Even without a device connected the app just locks up on start, it is completely unresponsive. There is definitely a compatibility issue.

  8. Just uninstalled and re-installed again and the app is responding now. Not able to test at the moment but all appears good now 🙂

  9. Windows10 x64 Home Creators Update 1703上でQuicco Sound mi.1 Rev.2は認識はするもののペアリングできない。mi.1 Rev.3はペアリングでき、MIDIberryで認識するもののEWI4000S+mi.1(Rev.3)–>MIDIberry->loopMIDI->Cakewalk SONAR X2->Roland V-Studio 100(ASIO)->Audio OUTの当方環境では極度のレイテンシーで実用にはならない。iOSのようにサクサクとは行かないようだ。

    1. 動作状況を教えていただき、ありがとうございます。

      使用しているうちに発生してしまうレイテンシーについては、MIDI MONITORのON/OFFで多少改善できる場合があります(MIDI MONITORのOFF時に、通常は自動で行われるガベージコレクションを強制的に行います)。

      しかし、それ以外の状況には今のところ対応できないでいます。当方ではmi.1 rev.3、OSはCreator Updateという環境でさほどレイテンシが気にならない状態なのですが……。

      midiberryの設定で出力をMicrosoft GS Wavetable Synthでも同じ状態でしょうか?


  10. 早速の返答ありがとうございます。ご指摘のMIDI MONITOR=offの状態ですし、MS GS Wavetable Synthでも同じでした。
    参考までに、当方のiOS環境はEWI4000S+mi.1–>iPod Touch(Ver.9.3.5)->iRig MIDI->Lightning USBカメラアダプタ->USB HUB->Roland UM-ONE mk2(MIDI out)->Roland VS-100(MIDI in)->SONAR X2->Roland VS-100 Audio Out(ASIO)->モニタースピーカーとなっています。

    1. 当方、YAMAHA WX5は使用したことがあるのですが、EWIについては知らなかったので、EWI4000Sが送信するデータを確認してみました。




      MIDIberryが使用しているUWP MIDI APIは昨年登場したばかりということもあってか、パフォーマンス面で従来のものより劣るようです(これはマイクロソフトにがんばってもらうしかありません)。また、プログラム使用している言語のC#も、C++よりも劣るようです(半分は当方のプログラミングスキルの問題)。

      こうした現状から、私が提案できるのは、EWI4000Sから送信するデータをなるべく減らすことくらいです。実際に必要なデータはアフタータッチ、ブレス、エクスプレッションのどれでしょう? しぼることはできませんか?




  11. EWI4000のブレス関連のMIDI CCを11(Expression)だけにすると、かなりレイテンシーは改善しますが実用レベルではありません。また、Verocityが固定される為に、音の立ち上がりが単調になり吹奏楽器の特徴が失われます。EWIは少なくともBreath, Verocity, Bend, Portamento, VolumeまたはExpressionを駆使して音源に表情を付ける楽器のようです。
    WindowsでBLE-MIDIがなんとか出来るようになった事に、敬意を表します。そして実用に向けてUWP MIDI APIの早期改善を切望します。
