May Is MIDI Month

The MIDI Association Announces 2019 membership and donation drive      16/04/19

May Is MIDI Month


The MIDI Association (TMA), the free community for MIDI users, is launching the second annual May is MIDI Month membership and donation drive. Here's the details in their own words...


 
May is MIDI Month is a celebration of MIDI for the entire MIDI community: companies making MIDI products, the press/media, and musicians and artists who regularly use MIDI. MIDI connects products from different companies together and also connects creative people from around the world.
 
As 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.
 
TMA media sponsors, including the one you are probably reading this on now, 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 at www.midi.org/fundraising. Matching donations from our sponsors will multiply that to $22,000.
 
The funds raised will be used to improve TMA member services and develop interactive content to explain new MIDI specifications like the exciting new MIDI 2.0 protocol.
 
The MIDI.org website is the definitive source for MIDI instructional materials, including tutorials. videos, and specifications. Traffic to the MIDI.org web site exploded in January, 2019 with over 117,009 unique hits to an article announcing MIDI 2.0 prototyping.
