Support for BlueTooth MIDI

Does MIDIMapper support Bluetooth MIDI? It doesn't seem to recognize the HW when present.

Re: Support for BlueTooth MIDI

MIDI Mapper recognizes all the devices mapped by the WinMM layer.
It calls the midiOutGetDevCaps() function (https://docs.microsoft.com/windows/win32/multimedia/midi-functions) to enumerate them...

Could you please check if other programs (like VanBasco MIDI Player) recognise it?

Here's an example with a BT midi device connected. It shows up in MIDIBerry but not the midimapper.

Re: Support for BlueTooth MIDI

It seems that BlueTooth MIDI devices have a non compliant driver interface that makes them partially (or not at all) visible to standard MIDI programs.

This is the best workaround I've found so far:

Sadly it's hard for me to further investigate on the issue, because I would need the BT hardware here to test...

Re: Support for BlueTooth MIDI

Thanks for the prompt response and the tip. It is kind of what I expected with BT MIDI on Windows. I'm using Yamaha MD-BT01 Bluetooth Wireless MIDI Interface for $49.99 from Sweetwater.
