Did you know that you can now use MIDI over Bluetooth? Take a look at the demonstration video below:
This is an excellent development for musical technology. We have clearly come a long way since MIDI was invented in 1983. Back then, and for years afterwards, you needed to use special MIDI cables and connect to specific MIDI in and MIDI out ports.
In more recent years, USB has become the standard way to make a MIDI connection with a computer. That made things a lot easier because you no longer needed to use the specific MIDI ports and cables. But now, being able to transmit MIDI wirelessly, this is the ultimate step in the evolution of connecting musical instruments and devices up together.
Along with Ableton Link, this paves the way for being able to collaborate easily with other people without needing to have lots of cables all connecting things up.
