Depends.

If you are talking about rendering music for games, websites, etc via
MIDI files, I would expect that to be rare these days.

But if you mean interfacing with hardware synthesizers made before 1999
or so - then MIDI is the only way to go. There is still quite a bit of
such equipment still in use that will be used until it dies.

Even modern USB based keyboards, knob boxes, and other such audio
controllers often emulate a USB to MIDI interface to interact with
software. This spares the expense of writing custom drivers.
