I agree with you in that midi was a lowest common denominator protocol, and
its present framework is so restrictive that I long ago gave up on it. Using
8 bit words for control, and so limited a number of channels available on a
single port, and a data speed so slow, made almost anything I did into a fast
but discernible Floyd Cramer effect even though I was using 2 midi channels
at the time. MIDI was a stopgap, a huge selling point if you will, for all
the $100 to $800 keyboards of the day, only recently have they become
polyphonic enough to even explore midi fully.

It is now at least 15 years past due for a new, far faster, and more
expressive protocol. Something based on the TOS connector or similar
relatively inexpensive hardware interface that can handle 100x midi's traffic
on a single, daisy chain-able connection. I'd suggest 1394B, but in a setup
and tear down every night scenario, I don't see that as being as rugged as a
plastic optical fiber.

If this is _that_ protocol (I came in late to this I think), then lets get
going.
