The AES Standards Committee has re-established its liaison relationship with the MIDI Association (formerly MIDI Manufacturers Association) standards working groups. They have recently adopted MIDI 2.0 and are now looking at network transports. The MIDI has assigned Chris Grigg as the technical liaison with AES. MIDI is a crucial part of many audio devices. We look forward to building on our long relationship with the MIDI technical team to ensure maximum interoperability of our respective standards.
