Implementing MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) inside of real-time visual software is pivotal for several reasons:

1. Synchronization: MIDI allows for seamless synchronization between audio and visual elements, ensuring that visuals respond accurately to musical cues, and enhancing the overall performance.

2. Interactivity: Through MIDI integration, artists can use musical instruments or controllers to manipulate visual parameters in real-time, fostering a dynamic and immersive live experience.

3. Versatility: MIDI can trigger not just notes but also specific commands and Control Changes, enabling complex visual sequences or effects to be initiated by a simple MIDI input.

4. Standardization: As a universally recognized protocol, MIDI ensures that various hardware and software components can communicate efficiently, making setups more consistent and less prone to technical issues.

5. Creativity Expansion: By bridging the gap between audio and visual realms, MIDI empowers artists to explore new dimensions of expression, pushing the boundaries of their creative visions.
