MIDI 2.0 Prototyping Tool Announced @adafruit @johnedgarpark #midi

In order to assist developers with creation of MIDI 2.0 devices, Canadian music tech company AmeNote has announced the ProtoZOA prototyping platform. The device uses two Raspberry Pi Pico RP2040 boards and provides MIDI USB device and host modes via Ha Thach’s open source TinyUSB, DIN-5 MIDI In/Out, TRS MIDI, a number of hardware inputs, and support for an optional display module and wireless expansion.

The ProtoZOA code will allow developers to prototype MIDI 2.0 features such as Universal MIDI Packets, MIDI-CI Discovery, and MIDI 1.0 to 2.0 translation.

“Our plan is to release most of the ProtoZOA source code as Open Source with a permissive license.” noted AmeNote’s Mike Kent. “That will allow even non-MIDI Association members to use the code to develop MIDI 2.0 products.”

Available Q4 2022, MIDI Association members can request one free ProtoZOA module, with additional units costing $250. Price for non-members TBD.
