my personal view... the old software should stay the old software. Great for retro but it really makes no sense to win new users because it cannot compete with modern software. So in my view either port modern software and keep the GUI or port modern software and change the GUI to Zune or create something from scratch

Trying to modernize old software will not work in my view

A new user when he approaches AROS and sees those graphics, he changes his way because he thinks that AROS has remained in the stone age !

It is the newness that attracts users not the oldness

Bar & Pipes is a great program, I don't know if it's true but it was said that part of its code was used by Windows DirectX, in my opinion with a nice renovation it can come out a nice program for those who like this kind of applications.

But is there anyone around who can implement the required drivers to make the MIDI interface work with AROS :-)

I appreciate the other information but I just want to plug my keyboard into the AROS box and use it :-)

Mister Steve remained few developers who deal with the Abiv1 system I don't think we will have luck to find one for the specifications you requested

Someone talented will come along to solve the Midi Crisis.
But not me. I'm a junior programmer.

Maybe we could convince Michal Schultz to write a Midi driver if he would like extra beer money.  8)

Michal specializes in writing drivers. He seems to enjoy the hardware side of things more than software.

I looked up the USB midi specification, fortunately it seems to use bulk transfers so there would not be a problem for the class to run on current AROS usb stack.

I no longer have any AROS build system set up at the moment and I think I would be the last to take upon the quest as it all went very south the last time, very sorry about that. It almost got to the point of being usable.
