      I labeled my switches on the bottom of unit with a silver magic marker.
      M/RF for 1, U/RF for 2, U/M for 3, and for the power switch O I L.
      M = Midi
      RF = Radio Freq. transmitter
      U = USB
      O = OFF
      I = ON
      L = LOCKED

      It just works.

      Comments about CME WIDI X-8 Wireless MIDI Interface:

      I bought this 1.5 years ago from Musician's Friend after using a pair of M-Audio Midair keybords which did not work well for me. Mine came with 2 units. The range is good with no stuck notes. Just plug it in and it works great.

      Error in write-up

      By Wild Will

      from MA

      Comments about CME WIDI X-8 Wireless MIDI Interface:

      The text says two devices are needed for full duplex operation - this is incorrect! If you want to connect a MIDI device to a computer or another MIDI device, you need two units to make a complete MIDI link at all. Only if you're already using a CME wireless adapter in your system can you get away with just buying one!

      Deceiving...

      By Anonymous

      from Undisclosed

      Comments about CME WIDI X-8 Wireless MIDI Interface:

      Conflicting advertising... the WIDI X-8 owners manual posted on the CME website clearly indicates that TWO devices are included in the package. Not true. The price listed is only for one unit - which is completely useless for any wireless application unless you by another one. Why can't they market this as a "system" that is ready right outta the box???
