Moving up

As part of my new years resolution to put considerably more effort into making Vacoloco into a business, I’ve registered, and obtained a MIDI sysex ID. It seemed to make sense given the OS updates I do are currently done via MIDI.

So, new products will be using this instead of the PPG manufacturer ID I had been using (with a respectful nod to Wolfgang Palm, creator of the PPG range).

    Could you post a short article on how you went about this? Like, who did you have to contact, what did you need to provide, and how much did it cost?

    Thanks!

    I couldn’t find a contact link on your site, but FYI, your comment system spits out errors when you comment.

    Warning: stripslashes() expects parameter 1 to be string, array given in /home/cobtwdcf/Vacoloco/blog/wp-content/plugins/akismet/akismet.php on line 255

    Among others.

    IE9, Win7 x64.

    Pete,

    Actually, it’s really easy, goto the list of manufacturer IDs (http://www.midi.org/techspecs/manid.php) click the “apply for an id” button and download the PDF.
    I then imported it as a PNG and overlayed text in photoshop, then email it to them. They send you back details of how to pay (I used paypal) and you’re done :)

    I’ll also sort out a link to the “contact me”
