MIDI turns 30: a revolutionary open music standard lives on | The Verge

The list of digital technologies that have remained in use for a decade or more is a short one. MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface), the universal standard for communication between electronic instruments — which debuted at NAMM in 1983 — has gone unchanged for 30 years. Introduced to the public the same year Microsoft releasedWindows 1.0, MIDI belongs to a Paleolithic era of computer interface design. Nevertheless, it’s still used in every major recording studio, by almost every electronic musician working today, and aspects of its design have directly influenced the evolution of several musical genres.

“The music business is fucked up. It’s so often you see people rewarded for the wrong reasons. You see these people rise out of nowhere with little to no talent that are put together by corporations. That’s the thing people don’t realize, that all these people that you see rocket out of nowhere to superstardom: occasionally there’s someone who’s an awesome musician, but nine times out of 10, it’s a fucking product and it’s scientifically engineered to fucking move units.” - Jim James

“You Got It” by Jeff Redd

"California-based mega-retailer Amoeba Music, the last big record store on the block, has moved into the digital age with both feet, with its inauguration of a revamped website. And possibly the most intriguing element of that site, and a direct reflection of Ameoba’s dig-deeper philosophy, is the so-called Vinyl Vaults section — thousands of rare and out-of-print LPs, 78s and 45s that flow through the company’s three outlets in any given week — now available for sale via download."

— Currently there are about 1,000 digitized vinyl titles available, including some rare Louis Armstrong 78s and 144 Sun Ra records.The cost for the ripped tracks: 78 cents per track for MP3s, 80 cents for Lossless M4As and $1.50 for WAVs. — Heidi (via Variety)

Hi there, long time no see. I’ll have to stop being so lazy with this tumblr thingy, it’s been too long since my last post… Anyhow, today I wanted to let you guys know that I’ve put together a tune with a vocalist, MS44, and it’s now available for free download via her soundcloud as well as mine! It’s called Massive Delusion, have a listen :)

I’ll start posting more often here on tumblr from here on out, let’s say it’s my delayed new years resolution :D

Love,

Axel
