What exactly is MIDI?
My buddy is really interested in getting into synth sort of things, and he already can play the piano. He constantly sees "MIDI Compatible" or "MIDI Controller" and it's driving him up the wall not knowing what it is. I believe I know a little about it, but not nearly enough to really know what it does.
So do you guys think you can help me out on this one? What exactly is MIDI? What is it used for? What can we use it for?
Remo, Tama, Ludwig, and Zildjian?
Doesn't get much better than that...
