8 - 10 MayAbleton HQ, Berlin

We're shaping the future of audio creation

MIDI HACK is a hackathon aimed at shaping and defining the future of analog and digital music creation. 

Our goal is to bring together industry leaders, interesting start-ups, software developers, hardware fanatics and musicians who push the envelope of music creation to spawn great and creative ideas for the future. 

Ever wanted to rip apart some MIDI controllers to create a new one? Maybe you're thinking about writing a new VST or AU? Or how about finding new ways to perform? If any of these or similar subjects sounds appealing, then this is the hack for you.

The first MIDI HACK brought 150 music lovers from over 10 different countries to the Spotify office in Stockholm, Sweden, for a weekend filled with audio hacking, workshops and inspiration. This time we're taking our concept to the music tech capital of the world, Berlin, to continue the journey we've just begun.
