I just did a quick search for BT 5 modules which have 800 feet range. I have a feeling that the latency is lower than WiFi but will look into it. With BT 5 you get more range when you lower the bandwidth so I have a feeling that 800 feet is just the start.

Modules available here.

They have some longer range devices to go > 1kM :bouncy:

That was just the first one I found.

+1 for Bluetooth. Korg’s MIDI over Bluetooth is great, very solid and low latency.

Just found a reference, the BT 5 latency is <3ms which is about the same as Wifi (1-3ms) - depends on the number of users.

I was thinking of a hardware solution rather than something that runs on a laptop - MIDI connectors at each end, no wires in the middle.

I think I might make one just for fun :headbang:
