Who uses the Windows 10 WinRT MIDI API?

I’m currently planning on enabling the WinRT MIDI API in one of my apps so that it can support multi-client MIDI, which the Windows 10 UWP MIDI API supports according to this Microsoft blog post.

However the same post states “As long as all apps with the port open are using the Windows 10 UWP MIDI API and not the older Win32 MME or DirectMusic APIs, they can share the same device”. The limited info I can find suggests not many applications use this new API yet, therefore I may not be able to make use of the multi-client feature.

Does anyone know which companies / developers do or do not use the Windows 10 UWP MIDI API? Or who of you as JUCE developers have enabled the JUCE_USE_WINRT_MIDI option in your projects?

  • I use it
  • I don’t use it, but plan to in the future
  • I don’t use it, and don’t currently plan to.
