wireless MIDI device

I've been gearing up to take on a new hobby project, building a wireless
MIDI controller.

I've done a fair bit of research and I am pretty straight on what parts I
need for the task and so on.

The one roadblock I've hit is making the setup wireless. The options I've
explored are mainly Bluetooth and RF with the latter looking to be more

Problem is, I'm so new to this that I'm not certain what to do next. I'm
aware of how to program a PIC chip to read output from a sensor, and in
turn translate that data and send it over a serial MIDI connection to my
computer to have it trigger the said note.

I'm hoping that someone could give me some idea(s) as to how to accomplish
this wirelessly? What parts I will need, what a basic schematic might look

My device will most likely have 12-14 buttons that will need to send a note
a controller change upon being pressed. Velocity register through a piezo
or FSR is also likely.

I've done some searching around already but couldent find anything in
practice, mostly just theroy of how it "should" work.

It woulde be especially helpfull if anyone has, or knows of a working
controller similar to the above mentioned (tutorial or other).

Many thanks in advance-

Take a look at the Bluetooth modules from Ezurio (former TDK, at
www.ezurio.com . They can turn any serial link into wireless.

So how many groups did you target with this multiple posting?  Couldn't
you have at least cross-posted?
