Looking through the MIDI 2.0 specs I’m having a hard time as I’m not really seeing the things I was hoping for. Someone correct me if I’m wrong, but is there still a 16 channel limit and only 128 notes?! Most of what I’m seeing as far as improvements go are things that sound like they’re going to be more difficult to develop for such as crosstalk between devices. Who’s asking for that? I just want to be able to send simple data more efficiently with the lowest amount of latency possible. A big one I was hoping for, but am not seeing is the ability to send individual frequencies. Basically the note number could function as an identity for the note, and the frequency would be part of the data with it. Instead I’m reading about tuning dumps. Something we already have and isn’t as efficient for microtonal and flexible tuning solutions. Really, someone please tell me they’ve expanded the number of available notes (not talking about polyphony, but expanding beyond 128 for microtonal scales) and channels. That’s all I want. Also, I see a major problem with requiring 2.0 devices to be able to receive 32 polyphony. I know of hardly any instruments that do that, especially if we’re talking about analog synths. Even for soft synths, for things like physical modeling when you have only a few notes you start to run into performance issues. That requirement seems completely unnecessary and like it’s hurting developers and making 2.0 much less likely to be used. 2.0 should listen to what MPE is doing and make those things easier.
