M-Audio MidAir
- What characteristics have motivated your choice?

Bought to replace my system "interface-z" (http://www.interface-z.com/produits/com05_hf.htm), which too often forgot to send messages midi-off.

- For what purpose?

Use on stage with a Roland AX-7 for a little fun. (See the photo in my profile) (I note that I am a jazz pianist at the bottom ...)


- The drivers are stable?

not installed (I use no USB)
- Do you ever happen to saturate the MIDI interface and if so, under what circumstances?

No, except for problems of distance between the transmitter and receiver, no problem.


- How long have you use it?

last month

- What is so special that you like most and least?

The +: midi-off message when detecting a power signal.
the -: stalls as soon as you move away a little.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?

a single interface (-z), but there is no wealth either ...

- How would you rate the quality / price?

it's going to use a studio, but the scene it unreliable. (I also noticed that when it moves there are stalls, and just stay still for a few seconds to make sure it works, so as we move into the studio little or no (! ) it must be less annoying.)

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...

I am a little disappointed. Compared with what I used before, the advantage is with the midair, a loss of signal detection automatically sends a message midi-off, so it avoids the notes that had unexpectedly ... For cons, the scope is too limited to use as I did. 10 meters outside, it must be good in a studio but on stage is a bit short. So no, I will not repeat that choice, in fact I think buying a CME Widi.

I bought it mainly for the price (a prohibitive price competition but with superior range: ex midijet 3x high)

I used to connect the twelve o'clock my sax akai ewi 4000s and an expander yamaha vl70 therefore stand alone mode


Stand alone mode so no driver needed but I've still install the driver vista in case I would use a vst directly on my pc without using the expander or acquire a MIDI sequence.

no saturation (one note at a time necessarily with the sax)


1 week of use it completed its function, finished my ariane wire (within 6 m with a small partition)
excellent value for money, I would do without this choice hesitate

M-Audio MidAir
I use USB with virtual instruments MainStage Apple (MacBook simple). The transmitter is on a Roland AX-1.


Hyper stable, nickel ...


So there I am amazed! I was afraid of 9 or 10m announced ...

A ballroom scene, after a summer tour: nothing to say! I took the test down to the stage with AX-1 and walked away, in fact we can go far enough, you end up with a bit of latency which ... According to what we play is manageable, and then when you go to the public is to put the Wai So latency, eh ...

More seriously, on a stage classic ball there is no problem ... Just once, skipping like a calibrated, I have a note which remained two or three seconds, and I could not play. But the note-off has actually started, and after a few seconds I could start playing!

After the disappointment of Midisport Uno had the balls to have to purchase this unique product manufactured "unfortunately" by M-Audio ... Well, no, I do not regret buying the MidAir. No more tripping bassist with my MIDI cable of 10m!

I do not put that 9 because of the maximum distance that could have been a little bigger still ...
