A digital piano roll.

I used to stick those paper rolls into the player and watch thousands of those slots pass over the bar and trigger the keys. Long before midi, I think I had figured out that these rolls were multi-tracked. How could one guy play all of those keys at one time
I've always thought of Midi as like a player piano. I wonder how long ago those came about I'm sure Midi must have rose from that concept...so in a way, it could be that Midi, conceptually is much older than 30 years. And long before that, there were 'Music Boxes'

Aloha M, and congrats.
Hope you are happy in your new digs and if you are,
that you live there for at least another 34 years.
In the early 70's I would stand on stage playing my guitar and imagine to myself;
Now the 'A' string is a trombone and
the high E' string is a trumpet and
the 'D' string is an Alto etc etc etc etc.
Twenty years later in the early 90's that dream became a reality
with the Roland GR50. I have since become a 'MIDI guitarist.
I am proud of that fact. Thank you MIDI. (and Warren Sirota)

So was the YAMAHA DX7 the very first synth to offer Midi spec ?? i don't think the Synclavier, Prophet 5, or Roland Jupiter offered it ??

Until I see my wife's life mementos packing every closet, under the beds, the garage and every other cubic inch of available space. Opposites attract. I'm a minimalist and she's a hoarder. Aargh!
