MIDI@40-April NAMM 2023

The April 2023 NAMM show is going to be a very special event for the MIDI Association.

2023 marks the 40th anniversary of MIDI, but we also expect new products that feature MIDI 2.0 from MIDI Association members at the show spurred on by our prototyping tools.

We have been working closely with NAMM on special MIDI@40 events including: 

  • The MIDI Showcase at the front of Hall A 
  • MIDI@40 exhibit at the NAMM Museum of Music Making
  • A MIDI@40 concert on the Grand Plaza Stage on April 15
