CME WIDI Master Review

We recently got our hands on the WIDI Master and wrote a short review here:

Interested to hear your thoughts about this product!

Hey! Question about the CME WIDI - what power is required to the MC6/MC8 in order to power the WIDI? If I power my MC6 via USB from my computer, would that power suffice for the WIDI? Does the MC6 offer pass power through the MIDI ports when powered through USB?

hey Jeff, I’m not sure how much power the WIDI Master will take, but power the MC8 via USB is more than enough to power the WIDI Master. If powering via 9VDC, you can just follow the minimum current recommended for each product.

so, to be clear, the WIDI device will receive its power from the MC6 MIDI jack when the MC6 is powered by USB?

Yes that’s right. The power that the WIDI Master draws will be coming from Pin4 on the MIDI OUT Jack.


amazing. man do I love technology!

The waveform generator stuff is making me want to be able to edit and tweak MC6 without either taking pedal and/or pedalboard to computer or computer to pedalboard…and that makes me think about this WIDI stuff…but am i right in thinking that it wouldn’t actually help a whole lot since the MC6 would have to be disconnected from the pedals while tweaking?

am i missing some trick here?
