StringPort Developer Program Announced


Keith McMillen Instruments has announced the formation of the StringPort Developer Program, which will provide software synthesizer developers with documentation and sample source code to easily develop StringPort versions of their software synthesizers.
At the core of the documentation is the release of the Acoustic Instrument Message (AIMâ„¢) Specification. Acoustic Instrument Message (AIM) is a spectral descriptor language for any acoustic instrument. It is an open, license free specification, which solves most of the problems associated with the keyboard model for synthesis control. AIM can be sent over MIDI, OSC, UDP, or any transport layer.
AIM, developed by KMI, communicates performance data from acoustic instruments such as guitars and violins to software synthesizers within StringPort applications or running within a plug-in host. KMI say that AIM provides a level expressiveness never before realized with MIDI.
Prospective developers may download the specification at http://www.stringport.com/support/stringport-manual/ More information:
