Joe is in the R&D department of MIDI Association corporate member Medeli and also serves on the MIDI Association Technical Standards Board. His presentation covered:

  • The important new features of MIDI 2.0
  • The history of MIDI, MMA and TMA
  • He encouraged the audience to join MIDI Association as individual members and Chinese manufacturers to join the the MIDI Association as corporate members to help in the development of new MIDI 2.0 specifications. 

Joe (with the help of the Chinese Musical Instrument Association) translated the new videos on MIDI 2.0, MIDI 2.0 Profile Configuration,  MIDI 2.0 Property Exchange and the MIDI Association re-branding into Chinese which was really appreciated by the audience and helped them gain aclear understanding of what MIDI 2.0 is and how it can bring added ease of use and expressiveness to MIDI. 


 Zhao Yi Tian (Founder and CEO, CME) 

Mr Zhao introduced the audience to BLE wireless MIDI by demonstrating the CME WIDI master which allows BLE MIDI connections between instruments with standard MIDI 5 PIN DIN connectors.

CME introduces WIDI: New milestone in Bluetooth MIDI -  

When people hear Bluetooth, they think about latency and troubles with pairing. We ask ourselves is that true with Bluetooth MIDI? CME introduces the new WIDI master as part of the WIDI family!

Li Zi Jin (Associate Professor of China Conservatory of Music) 

Li Zi Jin is a Visiting Professor at Schulich School of Music of McGill University and an Associate Professor at China Conservatory of Music. She did a presentation on different approaches in designing new musical instruments. She has previously done an interesting study "On Digital Platforms and AI for Music in the UK and China" with Nick Bryan-Kinns, director of the Media and Arts Technology Center at Queen Mary University of London in the UK. 

In her presentation], she explained the AI-Wekinator. The Wekinator is free, open source software originally created in 2009 by Rebecca Fiebrink. It allows anyone to use machine learning to build new musical instruments, gestural game controllers, computer vision or computer listening systems, and more.

The Wekinator allows users to build new interactive systems by demonstrating human actions and computer responses, instead of writing programming code.
