How MIDI is communicated: Foundations of Digital Audio

MIDI is usually sent over cables with 5-pin DIN connectors, or over USB. MIDI cables only carry a signal in one direction, but USB cables can carry two or more channels of MIDI at once. Matt demonstrates how this comes into play when using a DAW's sequencer with keyboards that have built-in synthesizers, and how the Local Off control helps to avoid doubled notes. USB MIDI interfaces are how traditional 5-pin MIDI devices communicate with modern DAWs.
