Avast Thar Mateys,

Looks interesting, but the Inspector hasn't offered a USB port (yet). 
The CME product line has been mentioned on the forum previously, with favorable responses.

Heck, Pyrate, just put the Jolly Roger in drydock and get the MIDIPro internal upgrade.  It's the cure for scurvy don't you know!

Avast Thar Peabody,

      Putting the Jolly Roger Zen in drydock is in the plan for next year.  All the acoutrements attched to the acquisition of BFD2 have taken me through me discretionary budget for this year.  But Aye still don't know about going internal wireless.  Aye like the concept, but as I previously pointed out, the thought of not being able to use the midijet pro on other equipment shivers me timbers a bit.

Anyone tried the M-Audio Mid Air solution? It's discontinued, but significantly cheaper than the MIDIjet.

The Mid Air blows, can't wait to get something better and throw it in the rubbish bin. The CME looks great at around $240 instead of the Midi Jet Pro. Can anybody verify that it works with Macbook Pro?

The CME WIDI-X8 works great! It was nice to throw the m-audio mid-air in the trash.  :D

After using the CME X8 for a while I am very satisfied! It is a nice alternative to the embedded wireless as I am not in the US and able to get my Zendrum in the shop.

How are you powering your Zendrum while using the CME x8? I think MIDI JET will provide a power option if you ask them - they did for my review sample.

I use the battery box with the CME X8, a bit bulky with two small boxes clipped on my strap.
