The M Audio MidAir allows you to bring your midi gear into the wireless age
The MidAir features a transmitter and receiver that transmit data from any device with a midi output. All you have to do is plug the transmitter into the midi output of the controller you would like to use and then plug the receiver into any device you would like to control and you’re all set. The MidAir is a 2.4 GHz wireless system that features a range of up to 30 feet with the same feel and response as a wired unit. The receiver also incorporates a USB output that functions as a class-compliant 1 x 1 MIDI interface, so you can connect the receiver directly to your computer for controlling your favorite soft synths.

Control It All
Designed for both studio and stage applications, the MidAir system makes it possible to control everything from keyboards and sound modules to multi-effects units and stage lighting rigs wirelessly. The system works with any with any devices that send and receive MIDI data. Onstage, you can turn your favorite keyboard or MIDI instrument into a wireless controller and control an entire rack of MIDI gear without cables. In the studio, the MidAir system is the perfect way to eliminate excess clutter and long cable runs.
Front of House and Beyond
Have you ever wondered what your favorite keyboard patch sounds like in the audience? With the MidAir system, it’s no problem to just pick up your MIDI controller with attached MidAir transmitter and check out your sounds from the floor. You can also control onstage effects from the FOH mix position or vice versa.
Multiple Frequency Channels
Much like wireless phones, MidAir automatically switches channels to insure a clear and unique signal. This means that you can use multiple MidAir systems in the same stage or studio environment.
Sync Your Stage
Tempo-based effects are among the most exciting things you can add to your guitar, bass or keyboard—and more and more guitar and bass effects are offering this functionality. But trying to sync multiple units has traditionally required running MIDI cables from a master keyboard or clock source to each player’s effects unit—including trying to find cables long enough. With the MidAir, you can achieve the same functionality without those extra cables. Imagine the creative possibilities of being able to control the timing of your band’s effects units from a single keyboard, MIDI instrument or computer. (Multiple MidAir systems and appropriate multi-port interface or splitter are required.)
