    Sycraft imparted these words:
    MIDI is all 7 bit communication so everything is 128 steps. That's fine for some things, but not enough for others. MIDI 2 is 32-bit so more resolution than anything needs. It is also bi-directional so devices can better communicate with each other and share capabilities and so on. So no more need to map channels or that kind of shit, a synth can tell a keyboard what it has and you can choose that directly. Plus lower latency so better responsiveness and such.

    Basically just a bunch of nice quality of life stuff.
