Author MIDI 2.0 announced at NAMM 2019

I didn't see this mentioned anywhere in the forums here in Miffwugglers. If it was and I missed, lock or delete this thread.

But 32 bit MIDI ... seriously cool.

Took some time. hihi w00t
calaveras
seriously. I think it's on RFC 1988.1.1.1.1.1?

Oh noes, all my MIDI 1.0 devices are obsolete now. woah

And Elektron users thought they had to wait a long time for an Overbridge update!

Midi 1.0 is definitely warmer.

I'm honestly waiting for the first, "I like MIDI v1 as it has a more analog sound," or some grognard lecturing those punk kids on how they have things easy with MIDIv2 and complaining about MPE.
Panason
Do you hear that? It's the sound of hardware manufacturers ignoring MIDI 2.0...

It sounds a bit like a Volca failing to sync to MIDI clock.. or an Elektron machine using MIDI Sample Dump.

Just be happy you got 7 bits- this is not the future, you know.
dooj88
for the love of god if it's going to have pins, spread them equidistant around the socket so i don't have to crane my neck round the back of the synth to double check which way the cable should align.
Panason
Looks like minijacks is the grim future.

I read today that the Moog One does not have working MIDI clock sync....

It (MIDI) really is a lost cause.

I'm pretty sure it will be complicated, maybe even obscure, hence why people will tell they prefer MIDI 1.0.
Dave Kendall
^ Yup. Quite likely many people will not understand it, or only get it a bit, and as since the dawn of the tool age, will blame it, not their understanding. "I can't use this tool - it's crap"

Someone will definitely say that zipper noise when opening a filter with 7-bit CCs is desirable. smile

I wish MIDI 2.0 well - not being able to foretell the future, it remains to be seen just how widely it will be adopted. But 32-bit control resolution, and backwards compatibility with MIDI 1.0 are both very welcome.

The current problems of sending MTC or MIDI clock down the same physical cable as other information will likely effectively disappear, if they get it right. Whether that translates to better timing DAW - MIDI and the outside world or not is down to whether the PC industry takes it onboard or not. USB MIDI is an example of that not being done properly - with a new spec from a body with plenty of folks from the MI industry working on it, I guess we'll see.

With USB 3 and low latency setups it isn't really a computer OS problem anymore.

And still others will claim they can still hear Velocity stepping through the 4 Billion+ steps that 32 bit will offer. Them "golden ear types" must have very tough lives. "It's so hard being me!"

meh

It's not negativity, it's skepticism. thumbs up

MIDI 2.0 will likely be a very useful upgrade. It's the humans that decide to use it wisely/properly or not that's the problem. smile

I do really wish it well, and welcome its (rather late) arrival. nanners

We share the same outlook.

Only thing I'm concerned about is if we'll be dealing with yet another connection scheme, or worse, adaptive pigtails. As it stands we have USB, USB Type C, Thunderbolt, Firewire, MIDI/DIN 5, and MIDI over 3.5mm. I understand that backward compatibility will most likely be addressed, however that says nothing about connection formats.

Only because I am invested in MIDI/DIN5, I hope they find a way to make this new version work over that cable method. MIDI is my weakest subject when it comes to synths, that said I wouldn't know if this new protocol can even be made to work over DIN5. One can hope!

pbear :(

I am VERY disappointed! I thought 2.0 was going to be a higher rate serial connection (like 256k) that would run over existing 5 pin & TRS types of connections. It's not! It's just a USB protocol that, to the average monkey, would seem like any other USB connection like a webcam or printer or document scanner. It's a who cares what it is format like Rewire, all internal to computer software with a breakout like optical.

Seeing it's bidirectionality in action appears proprietary and using USB is yet another nail in the 5 pin/TRS coffin

I am super upset that most manufacturers are adopting USB for MIDI 1.0. It's basically a USB-serial interface which seems ridiculous, 40-400 Meg connection that is still no faster than the original 0.03125 Mbaud connection of old.
The USB plugs and jacks suck. Always did, always will. Short runs, prone to failure. Not something I want on stage!! Most of my MIDI runs are over 20 feet long. Do that with USB?

I design modules with MIDI and it'll be a cold day in hell before I add USB MIDI of any kind to them. I may hypocritically add a CAT-5 ethernet connector though.

Kudos to the manufacturers for not adopting this protocol. MY ASS IS BLEEDING

I agree. USB midi is the Gods having a laugh.

The only thing I want from Midi 2.0 is perfect backwards compatibility. So many protocols make an absolute bolllocks of backwards compatibility, and for me (whisper it quietly) Midi 1.0 is just fine.
