More Realistic MIDI Sounds

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I checked out your recommended midi keyboard. I'm pondering about a new one. My old Korg 707 miss notes sometimes. Probably corrosion on the metallic parts of the keys.

It would be great to be able to see what midi it have direct on the first view, without to move on to Amazon, Thomann or Gear4Music for the details.

Todays kb's seem to be 90% usb midi, 8% usb plus din-midi and 2% din-midi.

Why is that a need to know? Well, usb midi locks you to one particular pc. Din-midi gives you more connection possibilities where one kb can serve several pc's.

(Usb is hard to split to several pc's).

@Robert McClellan Thanks.

I like din-midi.

Let me paint my picture.

I have 4 pc's. 2 win xp 32-bit and 2 win 7 64-bit. They are old but works ok.

Each have a usb midi-interface with 2in and 2 out. Cost approx 4x30 euro=120 euro.

I have 2 midi keyboards with din-midi and a midi-box, approx 40 euro, that can split two midi in to four midi out.

With this setup i can use any of the keyboards with any of the pc's without switching cables around. Pretty low cost too.👍

That’s pretty amazing!!! I’d love to see that unpacked! Do you have a video on the setup and how it works?

The house owner is putting in new windows right now.

Maybe after that. I'll think about it.
