This week on the podcast, we are joined by Microsoft’s Pete Brown, who is implementing MIDI 2.0 in Windows. MIDI (Music Instrument Digital Interface) is a system for connecting musical instruments and has been around since the early 80s. MIDI 2.0 marks the most significant change to the protocol in its lifetime, and Pete’s team is working to introduce a new MIDI stack into Windows.

Pete explains what MIDI is and delves into the reasons behind the necessity of MIDI 2.0. He discusses Microsoft's decision to rewrite the MIDI stack in Windows, making it open source, and highlights the benefits this will bring. Additionally, he treats us to live demos showcasing the new MIDI 2.0 functionality in Windows 11.
