The midi files

MIDI is a dream for some and a nightmare for others. How is it that some people's MIDI recordings sound so professional and exciting, while yours sound dull and robotic? Maybe you should spend your savings on some new technology, like last time? Or maybe you should learn how to program...

Commercial MIDI files, such as drum patterns and cover versions sound so much more convincing than the average home - grown stuff. Why? Because commercial files are written by commercial programmers - just like this book.

Drawing on his many years' experience as a professional programmer and musician, Rob Young explains how to get the max from MIDI. No more cutting and pasting little snippets of MIDI knowledge from magazines and friends! It's all here in one place - fully indexed, entirely product-independent and with plenty of trouble shooting advice. Going far beyond the contents of equipment manuals and user guides, The MIDI Files is a comprehensive, easy to read reference package covering everything you ever wanted to know about MIDI.


  • MIDI overview and basics
  • Choosing and using your MIDI hardware and software
  • Setting up a MIDI home studio
  • General MIDI, Roland GS, Yamaha XG protocols
  • Complete descriptions of all types of MIDI message with practical advice on their uses and pitfalls
  • Full explanations of the common (and not-so-common) sequencer facilities
  • System exclusive, binary code, tape-synchronization
  • Computers, interfaces, file types and hardware add ons...
...and a whole lot more!

Taking a light-hearted, informal approach, The MIDI Files guides the user through the initial "getting to grips" stage to present full and detailed sections on all aspects of professional MIDI song-sequencing.
