MIDI 2.0
« on: July 19, 2023, 08:38:35 PM »
This popped up in the Sierra Music and Memories Facebook group.

The MIDI Association recently released the MIDI 2.0 specs to the general public after the industry insiders had them for a while and with that comes the resurrection of MIDI in Microsoft Windows. What does that mean for you and everyone else? It means that there's going to be a revamped MIDI hardware and software support framework put into current and next-generation Windows releases, in the not too distant future. Unlike before, this is going to be an open-source addition to Windows, jointly developed by both the MIDI industry and MIDI enthusiasts, so it means vintage MIDI hardware being fully usable with the latest Windows devices and composition software, it means the possibility for new and more powerful software synth options from Yamaha and Roland, and it means the glorious return of proper MIDI usage to Windows game development and retro gaming setups. If you're involved in any way with programming for MUNT or FluidSynth or are just a programmer in any sense, feel free to join the Microsoft Windows MIDI Services GitHub repo.

Ah it's finally coming out. MIDI 2.0 has been in development/planning stages for YEARS. So long I stopped waiting for it.
