Grammy Award For Midi? What the hell?
"The Recording Academy® announced today that Dave Smith and Roland Corporation's Ikutaro Kakehashi will receive the 2013 Technical GRAMMY® Award for the development of MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface)."
First, midi sucks. Secondly there are many other technologists that have contributed far more innovation to electronic musical instruments in modern times. This is way late.The Grammys and the Recording Industry are more outmoded that midi itself Most people don't use midi at all in their productions. This award is ridiculous.
