Midi Keyboards: Why? How?… & 5 of the Best!

The Edirol PCR-M1, the world slimmest MIDI Keyboard…view more

A MIDI keyboard is a piano-style digital keyboard device used for sending MIDI signals or commands to other devices connected to the same interface as the keyboard.

MIDI is an acronym for Musical Instrument Digital Interface (protocol). The basic MIDI keyboard does not produce sound. Instead, MIDI information is sent to an electronic module capable of reproducing an array of digital sounds or samples that resemble traditional analog musical instruments. These samples are also referred to as voices.

An encoding scheme is used to map a MIDI value to a specific instrument sample. Also, other sound parameters such as note volume and attack are included in the MIDI scheme. The keyboard merely acts as a MIDI controller of sound modules and other MIDI devices, including DAW software.

MIDI keyboards are a very common feature of a recording studio, and any DAW setup. Most include a transpose function and the ability to set different octaves. Many MIDI keyboards have pitch bend and modulation wheels. Some also have extra sets of assignable rotary knobs and/or buttons for sending custom MIDI messages to the synthesiser, sampler or DAW software.

Other features that some MIDI keyboards might include are:

  • Input for foot switch (usually used as a sustain pedal)
  • Input for a foot expression controller
  • Semi-weighted or fully weighted keys
  • Capability of sending aftertouch
  • Direct USB connection for use with computers

In other words if your serious about making music on a computer a MIDI device will make your work better faster!

How do I connect a MIDI keyboard to my computer?

The first thing to do is to make sure that your MIDI keyboard has MIDI ports on the back. It is very rare to find a modern midi keyboard without MIDI ports.

Here are your options:

  1. USB to USB
  2. MIDI to MIDI
  3. MIDI to USB port
  4. MIDI to soundcard gameport

USB to USB

Every modern MIDI controller keyboard we sell excluding those by Fatar now come with a USB connection for easy use with computers. Some keyboard are even ‘class complient’ which means you don’t even need to install any software. The cable you need for a USB to USB connection is just a standard USB cable which should be included with your keyboard. For USB Cables in stock at Dolphin, CLICK HERE

MIDI to MIDI

Some of the audio interfaces we sell such as the M-Audio Audiophile 2496 or the Tascam US-122 combine Audio & MIDI I/O enabling your to connect your keyboard directly to your sound card. For MIDI Cables in stock at Dolphin, CLICK HERE.

MIDI to USB port

If your sound card doesn’t have MIDI connections and your keyboard doesn’t have USB then the next best option is a USB to MIDI interface such as the M-Audio Uno or the Edirol UM 1X.

These devices come equipped with a USB connection for your computer, and a 1 In/ 1 Out 16 channel MIDI connection to your MIDI keyboard. However if you had more than one MIDI device to connect such as a second keyboard or a sound module then mutli port options are avalible such as the M-Audio Midisport 2×2.

MIDI to soundcard gameport

If you are using a standard computer sound card rather than a music sound card, then it may have a joystick port.

If you have a joystick port then all you need is a cable that has a 15 pin ‘D’ connector at one end and MIDI connectors on the other.

If you need any further help, please call us on 0844 815 0888 and speak to one of our experts. We’ll be glad to help and direct you to the best gear for your needs.

More about MIDI…

MIDI data is not the same as sound data. What is transmitted over the wire is information on how to play a song, not the physical sound data itself. MIDI can be thought of better as a player-piano roll than a compact disk: just as the piano-roll instructs the player-piano to create the sounds, MIDI data tells a MIDI device which notes to play, patches (instruments) to use, and other information to help the instrument recreate the song. When you listen to a MIDI file, you’re hearing an actual ‘performance’ by the instrument, not a ‘recording’ of a past performance.

MIDI was not designed to be used with personal computers, but since it is a digital interface, they actually work very well together. Combining at least one MIDI instrument with a personal computer and a MIDI interface (a device that allows the computer to “speak” MIDI) allows for many interesting applications.

The  the easiest way to get this up and running is to us a USB to MIDI keyboard. This will take care of any MIDI channel assignments and route it effectively in your DAW with ease.The USB device drivers are also native with Windows and Mac, which it will just WORK

Problem Solved – Thanks To Mackie!

August 27, 2008

Mackie gear. The solution to all of life’s problems? We’d like to think so. See how the Onyx1640 solved a problem for the guys at MacWorld.com.

Jim Dalrymple works with Macworld.com and has been writing about Macs for more than a decade. However, he is also musician and decided to make an album, posting notes about the entire creative process on Macworld.com.

During this process, he ran into a problem. Not enough preamps for all the mics needed for the recording. Simple enough problem, right? Well, when you pose this question to audio engineers in a public forum, it is bound to get more complicated. Every audio engineer has their opinion, but a large majority of readers suggested Mackie’s Onyx Compact Mixers.

There are a lot of options and Jim took some time to consider, but ultimately decided to use two Onyx 1640 mixers. Here is an excerpt from his story:

“After reading the feedback in the article forums, I noticed quite a few recommendations for the Mackie Onyx 1640 mixer. It has 16 mic preamps and all of the other features you would expect from analog mixer. You can also use two of the channels for a direct guitar input via the Hi-Z input.

“The Hi-Z input is perfect for what I’m looking for because it’s designed specifically for guitars, allowing me to plug directly into the mixer. This means that I no longer have to plug the guitar into a powered box before going to the mixer. When I’m amping the guitar signal in software using Guitar Rig or other similar application, having a direct clean signal is important for the overall tone.

“The mixer also has an internal Talkback function—another handy thing that you don’t necessarily think about until you have a group of people standing around with headphones on recording some music. Using this feature, I can push a button and talk to everyone in the band at once without taking off the headphones, making silly hand gestures or otherwise disrupting the session.

“I got two of the 1640s, giving me a total of 32 inputs. The 1640 also has a FireWire option, so I can daisy chain the two mixers together and then plug into the Mac and use Logic or GarageBand to record all 32 channels. However, I didn’t do that. With all of the mics connected to the mixer, I’m using the recording outs on the 1640 to go into Apogee’s AD-16x using a DB25-to-XLR cable. The AD-16x is connected to the Mac via the PCI Express Apogee Symphony card, which gives me a great digital signal into Logic. To decode the digital output signal to analog, I’m using an optical lightpipe connection from the AD-16 into the Apogee Mini-Dac.”

Mackie Rides The Big Green Bus And Make Some Noise.

July 4, 2008

12 Students, 12,000 Miles and 1 Waste Veggie Oil Powered Bus on a Mission for a Greener Tomorrow. Of course, having a great message to put across is not enough – you gotta say it loud! Here’s the story of the Green Bus and what they brought along to make themselves heard…

Lofty goal? The 12 Dartmouth students who are living and touring on The Big Green Bus would probably agree. However, the intended message is rather simple—educate Americans about climate change and its relationship to energy issues.

This year marks the fourth summer road trip of The Big Green Bus, a green 27’ long 1996 International school bus which has been lovingly converted to run on WVO (waste veggie oil – view diagram). As they traverse the country, the students stop at any place where they can educate people. From festivals and block parties to wind farms and city council meetings, The Big Green Bus is a focal point for promoting high-profile media attention in the communities visited in an effort to spark a national dialogue. So…start talking people!

Mackie believes in the cause and wanted to provide some gear to help spread the message. Two SRM350v2’s and a 1202-VLZ3 enable the students to be heard during presentations and interactions. Bus-rider Trey Roy had the following to say, “We will be heard loud and clear with the two portable Mackie loudspeakers and compact mixer to run our presentations through.”

This setup is really good for those who want a powerful but compact P.A. system. If you’d like more info on this gear visit:

Visit www.thebiggreenbus.org  to learn more about this inspiring project. You can follow the bus as it travels the country and read the blog, highlighting the progress as the bus rolls on. There’s also some great video content on YouTube. So check it all out and learn what you can do to be a part of the solution.

Hopefully we’ll see more gear manufacturers acting positively to help the planet! Well done, Mackie…

Soundcraft Launches Three New Mixer Ranges with Built-in Lexicon Effects

August 14, 2007

Soundcraft announces the extension of its versatile Multi-Purpose range with 3 new mixers all featuring no less than 32 legendary Lexicon 24 bit digital effects.

The new Soundcraft effects mixers use the same AudioDNA® processor featured in many of the Digitech® and Lexicon® outboard products including the highly respected Lexicon MX500. With over 35 years experience, the Lexicon name is synonymous with the best reverb and processing in the business, providing the finest quality effects ever found in a console at this price level. The consoles also boast a user settings store function, 3 parameter controls, tap tempo and 32 effects presets.

The first new mixer in the range is the Soundcraft FX16ii. Already established as an immensely popular console, the Spirit FX16 has been offering professional audio solutions to musicians since 1997. Ten years on, Soundcraft has brought the FX16 into line with its professional range using the latest 24-bit digital Lexicon effects processor and a new control surface layout. All the FX consoles are versatile but the FX16ii will be particularly popular with recording musicians thanks to its 26 inputs, 16 direct outputs, 4 stereo returns and rotating connector pod which allows cables to be connected conveniently behind the rack to save space.

Second is the Soundcraft EFX, a Soundcraft EPM mixer with built-in Lexicon effects. Representing the smallest console in the Soundcraft multi-purpose range the EFX offers a professional solution in a smaller frame-size, available in 8 and 12 channel variants. Featuring the highly regarded GB30 mic preamps (designed by Graham Blyth for the popular Soundcraft GB series), one aux send and one FX send on each channel, the EFX is equipped to deliver the famous Soundcraft sound in a multitude of applications.

Lastly the Soundcraft MFX, a Soundcraft MPM with built-in Lexicon effects. The MFX is the most versatile of the Multi-Purpose range with two group busses, two aux sends, one FX send on each channel and two stereo input channels, all offered in 3 frame-sizes – 8, 12 and 20 inputs. The combination of a wide range of features and world leading Lexicon effects makes the Soundcraft MFX the perfect solution for many venues including theatres, small music venues, restaurants and houses of worship.

The Soundcraft FX range use the latest PCB surface mount technology which means that more features can be fitted into a rugged, compact frame. All the consoles can be rack-mounted through optional rack kits.
