I'm a Comp Sci + Music student at the University of Victoria in my final semester trying to figure out a final capstone project to do. I want to explore MIDI 2.0, but I'm having a hard time finding an avenue to create something. I haven't found any software or programming language support for it yet (MY EARS ARE OPEN TO ANY SUGGESTIONS!) and it looks the the Roland A-88MkII is the only instrument currently out there that support it. I've also briefly checked out the BomeBox by Florian.
Does anyone have suggestions about projects that would be doable in a 3-month university semester that explores MIDI 2.0? I feel that it is going to be important for manufacturers to have people with solid base knowledge on the 2.0 Protocol and such before it is widely uptaken and implemented. I just wish there was a bit more support for it at this point!
Cheers and thanks, any help is greatly appreciated!
