How To Get The Most Out Of MIDI

The MIDI Association (TMA), the global community of people who use MIDI to create music and art has announced that it is partnering with NonLinear Educating of Vancouver, Canada to offer extensive on-line courses on how to get the most out of MIDI, the Musical Instrument Digital Interface technology that is found in many of today's electronic music instruments. Here's their press release on the subject...

NonLinear Educating (NLE) is both a Powerful Video-Courseware Platform and an Extensive Library of Online Training Courses that powers companies like Ask.Audio, MacProVideo and Musicians Institute. Their services are used around the world to teach musicians, engineers, producers, and curious hobbyists how to make the most of their music and audio gear.

NLE publisher Steve Horelick comments, "Our innovative NLE Platform is the perfect marriage of a consumer-facing video e-learning library and a full-featured Learning Management System. We are pleased to partner with the MIDI Association to help them educate the world about MIDI."

The MIDI Association web site offers 1,728 hours of on-line training on how you can use MIDI technology to create music. The core MIDI Association curriculum was created by MIDI guru Peter Schwartz and illuminates both the science and art of MIDI.

There are also curricula for using MIDI technology in all the major DAW platforms and special courses on orchestration using MIDI. All MIDI Association members can preview 180 hours of video courses for free as a membership benefit, as well purchasing individual videos, curricula, or entire library passes at nominal prices.  After completing all the courses in a curriculum and passing a test, MIDI Association members get a Certificate of Completion. You can even purchase monthly or annual subscriptions giving you unlimited access to all courses.
