Hi Darryl
I'm really enjoying the MIDIjet Pro. A curse of the EVI (Electronic Valve Instrument) has been having to wrestle with a cable. Tripping over it has been a problem for all players of the instrument. I heard about MIDIjet first from Nyle Steiner, the inventor of the EVI and it's offspring the EWI (Electronic Wind Instrument). I was delighted to find that you were situated just a few miles from me. That the transmitter is so small that you were able to build it into the body of my controller has made it all the more user-friendly and attractive. In addition you managed to power the controller with the same battery - amazing! It works flawlessly and I find no difference in performance than using a cable.

There is no perceptible delay (which amazes me) and I am free to move around the stage or even into the audience if I like. Here is a link to a show that I did in 2006 at the Montreal Jazz Festival with David Clayton-Thomas.
Thanks again for the great work.
