“… The MIDI Manufacturers Association (MMA) has worked diligently over the decades to help MIDI standards adapt and grow as technology has evolved and new platforms have become available.
“Now MIDI as an industry standard and the MMA as an organization are at an important crossroad. We’d like to do more to promote the value of MIDI to retailers, educators, students and end-users. We’d like to reach the billions of people on the planet who have MIDI-enabled smart phones, computers and tablets, and encourage them to become active music makers. And we’d like to do more to promote the many enhancements and extensions to MIDI that we have created, including developing a realistic and robust business plan for our future-facing ‘HD protocol’ specification which is nearing completion.”
Toward that end, the MMA has put together a short (10-ish questions) survey, asking for your help providing some feedback on the future of MIDI.
