MidiStream is Kenton’s new wireless MIDI product that includes the transmitter pack and the receiver unit.

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 a portable MIDI instrument, electronic drums, accordion, etc. Another ideal application is to link a front-of-house MIDI sound or lighting desk to onstage equipment.

MidiStream has been designed specifically to address the problems unique to MIDI data transfer. It combines a high data rate with extremely low latency and low dropout rate. The transmitter comes 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 maximize reception) and is powered from the mains via a small plug-top power supply. It has four status LEDs, an on/off switch and a MIDI Out socket. The whole system has an extremely low latency of 2 ms, and range is at least 260 feet (outdoors).
