Hi, I want to learn how to Sequece Midi Files. Can Anyone suggest a good place to start? Thanks
yep.... sequencing software, there's a whole forum discussing it somewhere in here, but I think the concensus is that cakewalk and its associates (some by different names) are gooduns....
In the software you can drag and drop notes to a staff OR you can connect a MIDI capable instrument (piano type keyboard and some guitars though I did see an electronic autochord with midi capabilities once ) to your sound card or USB and input information that way. If you're creating MIDI files from existing songs I always listen to the bass line first.... if you're creating your own work then do what you please and I welcome the new composer to the block!
where can i find Sequece Midi Files... or antother images?
i'm still waiting....
You expected an answer in less that one minute? This is a message board, not a chat room. Images? MIDI has nothing to do with images. As for the sequencer, run a Google search and you will get about 211,000 hits.
better do Musicrobot searsh: http://musicrobot.com/
Glad I was bored and readin the boards here....music robot - great idea
And as for the guy wanting to learn midi stuff - read read read - and then experiment. The internet is a great tool to learn about anything you want, and with groups like this you should have no problem.
I agree with bumpnasty, read and experiment, just what I am doing at the moment and making a mess of the midi! Might get one ready to post to the forum in time. Midibuddy is an excellent resource, I found it when looking for a specific midi. Great community.
Musicrobot is good one
I love Musicrobot
Do a search for 'Midi Sequencing tips' or go to 'Cakewalk's' site.
Check around for deals--search on Google for a specific MIDI instrument and software. I use a keyboard. The files I make are not even worth sharing because I tend to use 3-4 fingers when I play a song and haven't mastered matching up tracks! That being said, it's fun to have a keyboard and can be really inexpensive. Mine is by Reveal and I don't even think it's made any more--but it is available on some sites for really cheap. The software it comes with is really basic that I think most "real" musicians would want something else to use.
