So I just visited the site in light of the new "MIDI Association" changes, and I'm really confused. There's a whole "Specs" section that has what it claims is the "Complete MIDI 1.0 Detailed Specification" however the content listed there in no way comprises the complete MIDI specification. There are lists of controller numbers and message IDs, but there's nothing about timing considerations, actual message format, or even a basic summary of how the MIDI protocol works.
So where are the actual downloadable MIDI specifications?
In the member's portal, there's a Document Downloads page, but the only thing listed there is a "MIDI Manufacturers Association Membership Form." But no other downloads. The form itself is an application that involves annual dues. So, I'm guessing this means that even though I have a user account at MIDI.org, and I can visit my "Member's Portal" I'm not an actual member, right? (In which case, what is the point of creating an account at the site?)
