    If MIDI is done right, you'll never know that it was used.

    All my productions are done using midi. You can check them all at
    http://www.mp3.com/bluecyberia

    My latest "Delio" that I just finished is at

    They don't sound like a video game. I always play all the notes using a keyboard. I don't step record.

    I posted this as a MaxB challenge,

    Two clips. One done with a Soundblaster, the other done with a GINA 20. Both recorded in 16 bits 44.1KHz rate.

    Both nothing but MIDI.

    This cover of Coldplay is the first time I used midi. I don't even play keyboards. The song has a lot of synths.

    Well, I pretty much only use MIDI for drums.
    I program them in Sonar and run them through my Boss DR-770 for the sounds.
    All four of these tunes are MIDI drums:

    I'm glad you can't. Love your voice, Laynestaley. Hell, I even like the real Layne Staley.

    Most of my music contains a certain amount of midi (drums, rhodes, hammond, mellotrons, cheesy synths). I did record some midi only stuff before, but I'm not too fond of the sound.

    Here it is (Goede Plannen I, II, III...back in the day where I just scribbled notes on paper in public transportation services.......I transported them into my computer several years later.....but I was never satisfied with the sounds......o well.......some of the ideas are cool)

    Musical Instrument Digital Interface.

    It's how electronic instruments can "talk to each other."

    For instance, I program a midi drum line on my computer (no sounds, just "instructions"/data) and run a line out to my drum machine. When I start the midi sequence, the computer is telling the drum machine what to play.

    Some reading material for you on MIDI:
