Hi all,

A +1 for a wiki page describing the differences between the two APIs. As a
(newbie) audio app developer, I have trouble diving into the MediaStream
Processing specs. I also agree that having short examples implemented in
each APIs would be a good solution.

Just giving my opinion here about MIDI in the Music Production Tool use
case, I think that being able to create MIDI tracks, upload MIDI files,
editing them with a piano roll and playing them with a VST-like instrument
are sufficient features. No need to access the MIDI devices in my point of

Thanks for the summary.
