The MIDI Association (TMA), a free community for MIDI users, has announced the second annual May is MIDI Month membership and donation drive.
The organization describes the membership drive as ‘a celebration of MIDI for the entire MIDI community’.
Funds raised will be used to improve TMA member services and develop interactive content to explain new MIDI specifications like the upcoming MIDI 2.0 protocol.
- Platinum Sponsors Ableton, IK Multimedia, Native Instruments, Roland, ROLI, Sweetwater, and Yamaha have committed to matching up to $2000 in individual TMA member donations in May.
- Gold Sponsors, including Analog Devices, Art & Logic, Bome, Moog Music, Melodics, and Keith McMillan Instruments, have committed to matching up to $1000 in TMA member donations.
- Media Sponsors donate free coverage and public service announcements about TMA events like May is MIDI Month.
The MIDI Association member musicians and artists are being asked to donate directly to the May Is MIDI Month goal of $2000 in individual donations. Matching donations from sponsors will multiply that to $22,000.
