does anyone know if midi over bluetooth on windows 10 will be supported?

With the new release of win 10, midi over bluetooth as a core element looks like it will be working.

Does anyone know if live will support this?

Thanks

Phil

    yup with anniversary update to windows 10 midi over bluetooth with the RT interface is working. but live does not see the midi port created. apps from the store seem to work fine.

    It is a different interface model, so it is behaving as expected unless live can recognize the RT ports as well as the 'legacy' midi ports.

    Any thoughts as to when the RT interface might be working?

    Thanks

    I can confirm pjkemp's statements.

    My Bluetooth-MIDI Devices are working well on Windows 10 Anniversary Update, but Ableton doesn't see the new MIDI System (and in turn doesn't see my devices).

    When will Ableton Live be updated to work with this new MIDI System for Windows?

    Because the reinvented wheel for Windows is better than the old system for Windows (and is now on par with Apple's CoreMIDI in performance).

    For example the new system,

    - supports multiple connections to the same MIDI port.

    - supports Bluetooth MIDI.

    - has much larger transmission buffers, so a message 'never' is lost.

    - provides a higher priority for MIDI and hence more consistent MIDI Transmission times, (very helpful with MIDI Devices that get clock output, or support complex animations).

    I sort of feel bad for Microsoft on this one. They released a huge amount of Audio/MIDI updates for Windows 10 over a year ago, and they've worked really well in my experimentation with them, but no major DAW (Ableton or otherwise that I know of) has set their foot forward to let anybody use them in their desired environment.

    I just tested this and it works perfectly. http://newbodyfresher.linclip.com/how-to-use-with-daw

    I have my FCB1010 connected to Ableton via the MD-BT01 bluetooth MIDI device.

    Windows is not exactly an authority on MIDI. I'd stay away from Microsoft innovations and stick to AppleMIDI/RTMP. Why re-invent the wheel?
