    Talking OT: Look at the history of MIDI

    Folks, I ran across this video from 1986 recently that shows what was going on in the world of computers and MIDI. How times have changed! I thought you all might like to see this video, and where MIDI was in 1986. It is located on archive.org

    I watched about ½ of this – very interesting…brings back memories. My Casio SK-1 (featured in the second scene) finally died about 6 or 7 years ago – must have had a million hours of play time – I carried it everywhere. I wonder what somebody back then would think of the new Steinway….

    Very interesting trip down memory lane. This really shows you how far we have come. In another 20 years we'll be looking back at all this primitive technology we have now.

    Thanks for posting this.
