Should soon receive a pisound HAT. Part of my use for it will be to make a Pi3 into a soundbox for my Eigenharp Pico. It doesn’t send MIDI directly and requires a computer. But that computer can be a Raspberry Pi. Having a portable setup will be fun.
What would be really great, though, is if the Pi could be used as a way to transmit MIDI over Bluetooth, say to an iPad running one of the many synth apps compatible with Bluetooth MIDI.
From this thread, getting the impression that something like this is somewhat doable but not yet very robust. My understanding of these things is admittedly kind of weak. But it’d be useful to know more about what’s possible now and what might happen in the future.
Here’s my understanding of how things are at the moment.
Sounds like Felipe (@ftonello) is saying that MIDI support in BlueZ may be sufficient to use a Raspberry Pi as a Bluetooth MIDI device but work still needs to be done to make everything run smoothly.

Otherwise, Daniel (@oxesoft) has created two tools to ease Bluetooth MIDI use on Raspbian. (Not sure how to install them.)
Would someone be able to lead me in the right direction in terms of making this work? Even if it’s not stable, yet, it can be a fun demo.
