Hello everyone, greetings from México.
I´m currently finishing my degree in Communications and Electronics Engineering. In order to do so I´m developing a MIDI controller and I´m really enjoying the process of doing so. Hence why I have decided to orient my career towards a MIDI Engineer profile.
As part of my research I've been reading interesting things about MIDI's history, as well as technical documents. Also, in my spare time I produce music and work on sound design, so I have a bit of experience with MIDI. Sadly my classes cover none of the labour market related issues and since I want to work on something related to MIDI engineering I am looking for expertise and advice on the topic. I am thinking of working on sales for a while once I finish school, thinking that I could learn about the MIDI Industry as a whole, Is it a good idea?
I would like to start a conversation around the following subjects:
-I'd like to know about past experiences of people who have specialized in MIDI.
-What are the challenges one can find in the industry?
-I'd like to know if there is a MIDI Association representative in Mexico and if so, how can I reach said person?
