MIDI Summary

Like a hero fallen from grace, the return of MIDI comes with the knowledge of past battles and the remembrance of the way it used to be. Some of this knowledge can be immediately put to use navigating through the dawning of a new era for MIDI; experience with: creating sample-sets, MIDI channel assignment, velocity, and MIDI Events. Harnessing the inherent efficiency, dynamism, and flexibility of MIDI heralds the return of a well tested methodology. However, some parts of MIDI still hold negative connotations that need to be minimized; "bad" sounding, difficult workflow, and general prejudice work against the fundamental structure that MIDI makes available.

Throughout this chapter we have:

  • Imported MIDI Files

  • Added MIDI Files to a Music Track

  • Made Modifications to the MIDI Target

  • Adjusted the MIDI Clip Tempo

  • Looked at the synthesizer functionality of the Wwise Synth One

  • Talked about preparing music content for integration.

Stepped through the process of:

  • Importing MIDI files.

  • Setting up the Wwise Synth One plug-in.

  • Creating a multitrack composition comprised of:

    • Four MIDI tracks representing different instruments.

    • Four Wwise Synth One synths representing different instruments.

We've also touched on:

  • Advanced functionality of the MIDI format.

Throughout this section we have created the following objects:

  • A Music Segment containing a MIDI file with individual channels, each targeting instances of Wwise Synth One which represent the different instruments.

  • A Music Segment containing four individual MIDI files, each targeting instances of Wwise Synth One which represent the different instruments.
