Hi to all musicians
Being new to digital music production I've been studying the difference between the two technologies MIDI & Digital Audio and so far this is what I've gathered, please comment on putting me right.
Am i right to say that the advantage MIDI has over Digital Audio is that with a MIDI recording you can manipulate and edit the data to your own taste, play software instruments and even export the MIDI file in to an Audio file so you can burn it to disc ?
Whereas with an Audio recording you are much more limited in terms of manipulating and editing the track, not being able to play software Instruments etc ?
I would expect then if i am right ? that MIDI recording technology is mainly for PC musicians who want to create music using plug-ins and effects inside a DAW etc ? Whereas Audio recording technology would be more focused on real live bands with real acoustic instruments ?
MIDI Vs software, Audio Vs hardware, am i right ?
