Bands & Musicians: The Top 5 Ways To Get Noticed in Today’s Music Industry
The reason I’m posting this, is to enlighten you with some history. Bernie Worrell change the way Robert Moog’s (inventer of Moog synth’s) were played. A lot of the synth leads,pads,saw sounds were first played by this guy. As a matter of fact, he was the first keyboardist to use the MiniMoog like a bass guitar. I just find it amazing for God to bless someone with such a gift and they use it elsewhere. But I can’t take away that this was gifted. Let’s go in…
Most of you that know me, you know I am infatuated with Intua’s BeatMaker 2 production app for the iPad. I would feel comfortable with just my iPad in a session with an Artist.

MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a protocol developed in the 1980’s which allows electronic instruments and other digital musical tools to communicate with each other. MIDI itself does not make sound, it is just a series of messages like “note on,” “note off,” “note/pitch,” “pitchbend,” and many more. These messages are interpreted by a MIDI instrument to produce sound. A MIDI instrument can be a piece of hardware (electronic keyboard, synthesizer) or part of a software environment (ableton, garageband, digital performer, logic…).
The advantages of MIDI include:
compact -an entire song can be stored within a few hundred MIDI messages (compared to audio data which is sampled thousands of times a second)
easy to modify/manipulate notes -change pitch, duration, and other parameters without having to rerecord
change instruments -remember, MIDI only describes which notes to play, you can send these notes to any instrument to change the overall sound of the composition.
