I am Muirén, and M3ıT means Multi-Modal MIDI Information Technology, and is mostly an umbrella for a range of different hardware and software explorations, most of it MIDI-based with application in the performing arts, far beyond electronic music instrument controllers.

My specific focus is on leveraging the untapped potential of the MIDI 2.0 now that real-world development tools are finally making their way into the hands of grassroots hackers and makers.

It is an extension of my🧙🏾‍♀️TınyMaker.SpaceProject, an organizing, evangelizing force, and funding source with the goal of establishing a more permanent home and makerspace that is self-supporting through it own efforts, primarily through sales of uniquely crafted, tangible fusions of art and tech, performing arts, and collaborative contributions of time, talent, and treasure by its patron cooperative.

Exploring MIDI 2.0 with Microsoft’s Pete Brown

MIDI (Music Instrument Digital Interface) is a system for connecting musical instruments and has been around since the early 80s. The MIDI 2.0 specification marks the most significant change to the protocol in its lifetime, and Pete Brown’s team is working to introduce a new MIDI stack into Windows.

Pete explains what MIDI is and delves into the reasons behind the necessity of MIDI 2.0. He discusses Microsoft’s decision to rewrite the MIDI stack on Windows, making it open source, and highlights the benefits this will bring, and treats us to live demos showcasing the new MIDI 2.0 functionality in Windows 11. Here are links to the Windows MIDI Services GitHub https://aka.ms/midi,Windows MIDI Discord https://discord.gg/a9wxVTsA, and The MIDI Association https://midi.org

Single vs Dual Drive Extruder

Because Galileo 2 and Orbiter V2 extruders have the same mounting points it makes this comparison “apples to apples” as much as possible.

Terrence Howard Comments • Neil deGrasse Tyson Response

I’m an advocate of citizen science, of free, federally subsidized education, decoupled from laissez-faire capitalist culture, and democratizing the organizational architecture of academic institutions.

My not being obsessed with credentialism unfortunately convinces the Joe Rogans and Terrence Howards of the world to mistakenly presume a common cause.

Neil deGrasse Tyson responds to comments made by Terrence Howard, reveals parts of his treatise, and explores the nature of scientific discovery.

MIDI 2.0 UDP Network Panel April 2024

In April 2024, the MIDI 2.0 Transport Working Group of the MIDI Association held a meeting to record their progress towards a new Transport specification. This specification will define the mechanisms and the message format for exchanging Universal MIDI Packet messages via a local area network. This enables the transport of MIDI 1.0 Protocol and MIDI 2.0 Protocol. This also defines discovery of available Network MIDI devices and Hosts, and management of Network MIDI Sessions.

Recent Updates to MIDI 2.0 & the MIDI 2.0 APIs

Members of the MIDI Association will provide a high-level overview of the latest updates to MIDI 2.0 specifications and the brand new MIDI 2.0 APIs in the Apple, Google, Linux, and Microsoft operating systems. There will be an overview of specifications being worked on, including the Piano, MPE, Orchestral Articulation, and Camera Control Profiles, and the Network Transport specifications, all of which are nearing completion.
