Join Garrick Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video Recording MIDI, part of Up and Running with REAPER 4.
In addition to allowing you to record live audio as well as import audio files. …Reaper also features the ability to record and edit MIDI data. …As you may or may not know MIDI instruments like keyboards or drum pads …for example don't actually produce sounds on their own. …When you play a MIDI keyboard what gets recorded is data about which note is …being played, when you played it, how hard you hit the keys, how long you held …the keys and other information. That information is then run through a …MIDI instrument in Reaper to produce the actual sound. …The beauty of MIDI performances, is that you can choose any instrument bank you …have installed on your computer. You may start by playing your piece …through a piano sound but you can instantly change that to to say MIDI …horns or a MIDI flute. All while keeping the same performance.…
Only the sound will change. Midi also let's you change the timing of …notes or the even the notes themselves that you played. …So if you came in a little late or earlier you can fix the timing. …
