Overview

MIDI is a digital language that allows multiple electronic instruments, performance controllers, computers and other related devices to communicate with each other within a network in a performance setting, so that a musician can create, develop, and/or perform a song in a practical, flexible and affordable production environment. MIDI is at the centre of digital audio but is still a mystery to many. The MIDI Manual is the complete reference on MIDI, written by a well-respected sound engineer and author. It offers a clear explanation of what MIDI is, how to use electronic instruments and an explanation of sequencers and how to use them. The MIDI Manual is full of useful tips and practical examples on sequencing and mixing techniques. It also covers editors/librarians, working with a score, MIDI in mass media and multimedia and synchronisation. Illustrated throughout with photos and screengrabs, this is the most readable and clear book on MIDI available
