Storing and processing MIDI

Storing and processing MIDI: Digital Audio Foundations
Storing and processing MIDI: Digital Audio Foundations

Most audio software can allow MIDI to be stored, processed, edited, and displayed in useful ways, such as regular musical notation, guitar tablature, or a piano roll-style grid. Matt shows how MIDI can be edited to fix mistakes, change the notes of a chord, correct the timing of a performance via quantizing, transposing a song's key, and changing the instrument that plays a part after it's been recorded. MIDI makes all this possible by storing the performance instructions, instead of the sound.
