MIDI 2.0 — What's New and How it Will Affect the Way We Work

Jennifer Hruska, Moderator
Rick Cohen, Mike Kent, Dave Smith

Join Jennifer Hruska as she moderates a discussion with leading experts about this major update to the MIDI specification. The original specification was released in 1983 and for 35 years remained at version 1.0. It has literally revolutionised the way in which electronic instruments and other devices are controlled. The new revision is completely backward compatible and codifies many of the technical developments manufacturers have introduced in recent years. This session provides an overview of MIDI 2.0 and examines the implications for users and the industry.
