The development of MIDI was one of the first steps that the music industry took in going digital, so naturally, it's been around for decades! And while it may have already reached its peak, it's safe to say that MIDI will be here for a long time to come. After all, it's still one of the top methods for triggering and programming samples and effects, and MIDI controllers are as popular as ever - especially for musicians using VST and DX instruments. If you're looking for new ways to take advantage of what MIDI can do, or if you want to upgrade the setup you already use daily, then this selection of MIDI utilities just might be the place to find what you need to keep the music flowing.
Choosing the best MIDI utilities for your setup will naturally depend on how it's configured. For instance, if you use MIDI software extensively, then maybe a USB controller is the way to go. Take the Korg NANOKONTROL2 Slim-Line USB Control Surface for example: designed to slide right in front of your laptop on a desk or stand, it's an 8-channel controller with dedicated transport control and native support for a wide range of software titles, including some of the top DAW programs. The NANOKONTROL2 is also designed to play nicely with software synths, providing customization over the behavior of each fader and knob on the controller.
Off course, the Korg controller is just one example of what you can expect to find in this selection of MIDI utilities. If your setup is hardware-based with some old-school MIDI gear from the 1980s and '90s, you might even make some good discoveries of hardware MIDI utilities in the used listings. There's no telling what might come in next, be it new or used, so it's always a bit of a ride to see what options there are to choose from!
