Google Chrome’s latest update added MIDI support, which means that app developers can make use of MIDI-enabled musical instruments and tools.
The new Web MIDI API allows websites to work cohesively with MIDI devices connected to a computer, tablet or even smartphone. This is a big change from recent Chrome apps that use the computer keyboard.
To check out the fancy new update, playing around with the Web Audio MIDI Synthesizer is a good place to start. But, if you don’t own a MIDI controller, you can still play with this drum machine (if you’ve got a mouse and keyboard).
