Happy Birthday MIDI!
MIDI turns 30. Enjoy this lovely 5 page article about it on The Register
Talk to me noichan. Talk to me about MIDI. How do you use it? What are your favourite memories of old school MIDI? Your disasters?
Me? I had a Yamaha QX21
Once I’d enjoyed making some brilliant beats (duh duh TUH! duh duh TUH!) if I wanted to make space for more songs, I would have to record the MIDI files to C60 tape meaning a stiff wind could have unravelled my plans as an industrial music master. Also, if the tape was used too much, it would stretch as household tape is one to do. Resulting in the songs you’d practicing being time stretched throughout. Try getting a drummer to play along to that.
