MD-BT01 to Seabord

Unread post by rejetto » Thu Jul 11, 2019 8:56 pm

hello, i'm trying to make my MD-BT01 connect to a Roli Seaboard ("block" edition), as it is a standard bluetooth midi controller.
Both devices keep searching (leds flashing) forever. Any attempt at playing notes is unsuccessful.
Any help? Thanks

I have not tried the MD-BT01 and it looks like an interesting gadget which potentially enables you to connect any keyboard that has standard MIDI ports to something like an iPad or other iOS device. As far as I can tell though, that is all it will do, connect to iOS devices.
Wirelessly connect your iOS devices (iPhone/iPad/iPod touch) to your instrument with Bluetooth and avoid having to reconnect every time you play
Doesn't mention anything else and whilst it would be natural to assume you could connect to any other bluetooth device that may not be the case.

I have used other bluetooth devices that would only connect to select other devices but not connect to bluetooth devices in general.

This IS a Yamaha product after all and they are known for their quirks and non standard functionality. :confusion-confused:
