A MIDIjet Pro is a long-range, wireless MIDI system created in 2005 by Artisan Classic Organ Inc. Its predecessor (no longer in production) was a short-range wireless MIDI system called "MIDIjet". It connects any two pieces of MIDI equipment wirelessly using a standard 5-pin connector.

The company originally conceived the MIDIjet in order to be able to voice pipe organs from a MIDI controller keyboard from anywhere in the sanctuary or auditorium. When they needed a system that was reliable farther away than the MIDIjet's 30 ft, they developed the MIDIjet Pro which has a maximum range of 500 ft.

It operates on the worldwide, license-free, 2.4 GHz band. It has 31 separate channels. Up to 31 can be used simultaneously in the same environment. Each pair is bound together so that they can only be used with each other.
