Has anyone used the MIDIJet Pro? It's a wireless MIDI transmitter that is super expensive and has supposedly been on tour with the biggest acts out there, but I've had zero luck with it. I'm using it with the Looptimus to trigger Ableton from across the room, since my interface is permanently attached to the piano, and I can't have a USB cable longer than 12 ft without mad distortion. So I'm trying to control Ableton from Looptimus through MIDI wireless. Ableton is showing the MIDIJetPro, but it's not seeing the MIDI signals from the Looptimus. Anyone have any thoughts on how to troubleshoot this?

Hey Joel!

Have you tried reaching out to the MIDIJet Pro support team to see if they can help troubleshoot the MIDI data being triggered and sent from their device? The Looptimus is sending default MIDI notes, not CC or PC messages. We've successfully tested the PUC+ wireless transmitter up to 150ft. and it worked flawlessly with Looptimus. Let us know what you find. Thanks so much! =)
