Overview

The MIDI Manual / Edition 2

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. This book has been established as the most complete reference on the subject, by a very respected sound engineer and author.





This manual has been revised and updated to include the new developments in hardware and software. Tips and practical examples on sequencing and mixing techniques have been added to enhance its usefulness as a reference tool for sound engineers, musicians and students.
