Using computers in musical studios has become very common. Now computers not only work as sequencing equipment, but also as multi-track digital audio workstations. In modern studio environments, many computers may be networked locally so that among other things, they can share MIDI data. Use of MIDI cables and hardware MIDI interfaces is now unnecessary. Not only does a local network (LAN) reduce the necessity of using external MIDI hardware, but it may also drastically increase the efficiency and flexibility of such a multi-computer studio.
We have been working hard to make our MIDIoverLAN communicate not only between several MIDI applications on a single machine, but between those on several computers, which finally led us to creating a new enhanced version of MIDIoverLAN. It’s now called MIDIoverLAN CP — our MIDI cross-platform solution for communication between MIDI applications over a local area network.
