IÕve been using midi for so long that I donÕt own anything that is not so old that it would be horribly out of date for someone new. However I do know that there are several low-cost books that do a pretty good job of explaining the concepts. Perhaps if you do a search on Amazon you might come up with something. You will find this midi thing and GPO it an exciting adventure, and if you have any specific questions there are a number of people here who can help you.
Got it all set up last night - awsome as expected! It works very well with Sonar and I quickly converted one of my older compositions. Still lots to learn though and I guess it's time to RTFM's. Going to need a memory upgrade too...
Just a general sort of question - I wonder how many users of GPO are musically trained? I started my musical career as a busker playing tenor banjo on the streets of Glasgow and for years I played by ear. I still don't read very well but I'm using Finale to compose tunes and despite the lack of training I like what I'm hearing and others seem to like it too.
Oh yeah, why is it that the inspiration and flow always seems to happen in the wee small hours just before the alarm clock rings?
Is the internet not a wondefull thing? Here we are from Scotland, Hong Kong, USA, South Africa, etc. and being able to exchange ideas. I am also new at GPO and find this forum and Garritan's homepage the best place to leard about GPO.
Thank you for sharing. I got a dead link as well. However, your kindness is duly noted.
I'm here thumbing through threads getting ideas for purchases I should make. I have virtually nothing at the moment and as a young man would like to spend my money wisely (since there isn't much to begin with).
Again, thank you for your response. If you come across other information that has an active link, please let me know.
