Musicians have been connecting equipment together using MIDI since 1983, and the great thing about it is that it just works. The less great thing is that it’s still limited by what was possible in 1983.
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 for the MMA and AMEI, their Japanese counterpart, to vote on its adoption as an official standard.
I’m looking forward to presenting more information on what’s new for musicians and developers in the new standard, both here on the A+L blog and out in the real world.
SXSW is right around the corner (the Interactive Festival is from March 8-12), and we’ll be there. Mark your calendars and come by and meet us. If you can’t make it to one of the events below, send us a note.
Art+Logic has submitted three proposals to present panels at the 2019 SXSW Interactive Festival that will take place March 8-12, 2019 in Austin, Texas. Since SXSW has received over 5000 proposals for approximately 750 sessions, it’s not going to be trivial to make the cut. About 30% of their selection process is driven by community voting via the SXSW PanelPicker site. We’ll be posting information about our proposals here, and asking for your support by creating an account on the PanelPicker site and voting for our proposals.
