If you look under   wireless midi for acoustic …..I replied to a similar question in September of this year regarding my own set up ……………..  remember you need to have the musictech midi system installed in the accordion !!! fortunately before I purchased the Piermaria accordion it was confirmed by the company that indeed a musictech system was installed during the manufacture of the accordion ………..    good luck !!……………...Giovanni

I'm interested in getting wireless midi out of my Roland (fr1xb).

Currently in the "pondering how this would work" stage. I'd like to try this Yamaha UD-BT01 thing, but it requires a power plug. (Which is a bit off-putting for a wireless solution. Huh )

So I'm wondering if it would work with a portable usb battery-charger power-supply? I don't think the Yamaha takes much power.

Before I bought the UD-BT01 (or messed around with its power options), I'd want to try it plugged in to see if the latency kills it. I've heard the bellows-control is hard for a lot of midi systems to handle, and assume adding wireless would only make that bottleneck worse.

Hi tony2000 ………….I did not realize that you were talking about using Roland V accordion ……..I honestly don't think the music tech system will work ….....you could always contact musictech in Italy and ask ??………..Why don't you contact Roland and ask them, the people I knew who worked on the accordion digital side have all left the company ………...best of luck let us know how you get on !!! in your quest ...............Giovanni

The UD-BT01 works with any USB battery pack as long as the USB battery doesn't shut off automatically when it "thinks" there is no device connected to it due to a very low current draw, and the UD-BT01 takes very little juice.

Range and reliability is limited with Bluetooth. It was designed to be a technology for short distance, low demand setup, not something where you want to transmit the equivalent of left hand, right hand, velocity keys and bellows data going to and from... I doubt the Yamaha system could handle it, and if it could... we are looking at maybe 20 feet of strolling area. I don't think this is what the OP is looking for. Smile
