Recording MIDI

  • MIDI:
    • What is MIDI? Musical Instrument Digital Interface MIDI is a protocol for connecting electronic instruments, performance controllers, and computers so they can all communicate with one and other. MIDI data does not represent sound ways; instead, it represents information about a performance, such as the pitch, duration, volume and order of notes to be played.
  • MIDI in Pro Tools:
    • PT includes an integrated MIDI sequencer that lets you import, record and edit MIDI in much the same way you work with an audio. There are two types of tracks we could work with MIDI data in PT:
    • MIDI tracks: stores MIDI note, instrument and controller data only. No audio can pass thru a MIDI track. They are often used with Aux Input tracks for monitoring and play back synth sounds or virtual instruments.
    • Instrument tracks: It provides MIDI and audio capability in a single channel strip. Inst. Tracks also store MIDI note, instrument and controller data as well they can also route audio signal for monitoring and playback of an instrument associated with the MIDI data on the track.
  • Connecting A MIDI Device:
    • Recording MIDI data typically involves connecting a keyboard; drum machine or another MIDI device as an input to your PT system.
  • Setting the Session Tempo:
    • When we open a new session in PT, the default tempo is 120 bpm.
  • Setting the Key Signature:
    • When you open a new session, by default the session key signature is set to C Major. You can set up your key signature in similar ways.
