I'm a former professional musician (keyboardist) and Midi user since I was a kid. Unfortunately, I had to abandon music for the past 10 years due to business, life, and college. I'm now back and I want to start developing for music again.
My search lead me to this article here:
I was wondering if this is still relevant today with all of the new technologies, tools, and frameworks to make music.
In other words, I'm not interested in re-inventing the wheel. Although writing something from scratch is way easier, at least in my perspective, I do not want to go that route.
Right now, all I want is to make a sequencer. I want to make something like a Rhythm Box that routes Midi to another sound synthesizer for playback. Of course, I'm looking for something advanced with all features you can find on a professional arranger keyboard.
Could someone here point me in the right direction, where to look first, and how to get where I want quickly?
