Midi over wifi from digital piano

Hi

My studio and mac is in the basement. In the living room above it I have a Kawai digital piano. It has midi out (classic 5 pin). My focusrite interface has classic 5 pin midi in.
I would really love to use the kawai as midi controller for piano recordings.

Can I in any way record that midi output wirelessly to my Mac?

And remotely monitor/control the playback and recording of the song in Logic from the living room? I have an iPad, but haven’t played with the Logic remote yet.

Theoretically I could drill a hole in the floor for a 10 m midi cable and headphones cable, but... well ;-)

Thanks for the idea, but I think that’s too cumbersome. I will have to transfer the project back and forth. First program drums and cue-track. Then back and forth every time I feel like a bit of piano/Rhodes etc.

I know it’s a bit of luxury, but I really just LOVE the action and touch of my kawai. No fatar keys or other comes close. So inspiring and easy to play on.

Any other ideas? I remember seeing some midi plug from Yamaha, but cannot find it now.

Ah... found it: Yamaha MD-BT01 Wireless MIDI
https://m.thomann.de/dk/yamaha_md_bt...di_adapter.htm

But it’s Bluetooth 4.0 and I’m not sure the range is enough. It says 10 m, but I guess that’s in free air. I have 5 m through a wooden floor.

If somebody made a powered Wi-Fi version perhaps?
