For the past year or so, I’ve been working as one of a group of developers within the Protocol Working Group of the MIDI Manufacturers Association to create prototype tools and applications that implement the upcoming MIDI 2.0 specification as it’s worked its way through many drafts to the point where it’s now ready to be voted on as an official standard.

The MIDI Association, the free community for MIDI users, is launching the second annual May is MIDI Month membership and donation drive.
May is MIDI Month is a celebration of MIDI for the entire MIDI community: companies making MIDI products, the press/media, and musicians and artists who regularly use MIDI. MIDI connects products from different companies together and also connects creative people from around the world.
Every January, the entire pro audio and music instrument industry congregates in Anaheim, California for the Winter NAMM Show. This year it’s taking place later this week, from January 24th through Sunday the 27th at the Anaheim Convention Center.
Art+Logic will be in attendance for the 28th consecutive year, checking in with clients (old, new, and future!) and also taking a peek at new gear that’s coming down the pike.
I’ll also be speaking Saturday afternoon on a panel as part of the A3E track — “Cloud Integration Strategy: Server vs Service” will happen at 4PM Saturday January 26th in the Hilton. If you’re there, please say ‘hey’.
