I have a Airturn bt200s/6 pedal and using it to connect to my arranger bk-7m. Having issues with long connect times to WidiMaster. Did a live Zoom meeting with cme last night. Looks like another upgrade is in the works. As far as WM connecting to each other no problem. And with the latest upgrade you can group the WidiMaster. I do not use live on a gig yet, but thinking about it? Here is the link to the pedal I am using. Anyone tried this so we can compare notes?

I've not upgraded my WidiMaster units yet (ended up purchasing 6, or the equivalent of 3 virtual cables... lol). When you say "group the WidiMaster", do you mean group 3 or more units in to 1 communications group?

At this time I am using 1 widimaster to connect to an already Bluetooth pedal like the Airturn bt200s/6. the issue here is getting the WM to connect to units that have there own Bluetooth built in. WM connects to each other beautifully and yes they have the grouping in the upgrade, “central” could be the accordion and “peripheral“ could be arranger. What I understand, once you group them, they will always connect to same one. Otherwise, anytime you turn on WM it will try to connect to the first available Bluetooth...but not into grouping as of yet.
WM connects to iPad apps perfectly and can bridge to the Airturn pedal that way...
which defeats the purpose of WM to use it to connect without an iPad or computer...
i have the widi jack test model on its way to compare direct connect to Airturn pedal...keep you posted...

It's really interesting how much you and I lave tested and worked out in the last couple weeks... the trick is to get them all in to MidiWrench and then you can pretty much share what is needed between them or even other units.

Most do not know that a "controller" can handle as many as 7 "slaves" in the BT world. :)
