Default Sending Midi output from a computer

Hi,

I set up my MD 24 and sent it a syx file as described in other threads. Now how do I send it a MIDI song? I am using the MD24 to trigger solenoids that hit bells.

Sorry first time working with MIDI.

Hi Kaboom, welcome.

What you need is some kind of program that includes a MIDI sequencer. There are tons of choices out there. Here's an incomplete list:

Let us know how you get along...

similar question here. i use protools, which apparently is capable of running this device. curious if protools can run this on a midi track in sinc with other audio tracks in a session while it is in playback or record mode or if the midi track has to be the sole track in a session?

also, can this device signal velocity in a midi track?

Hi Captain, welcome.

I don't use Protools, but I'm certain that it can sync MIDI together with audio tracks.

The MD24 can respond to MIDI note velocity values. To give a more detailed response, I'd need to know what you'd like to do with the velocity value.

john,
i'm making a midi controlled string instrument and i was thinking of having a magnetic coil near the pickups controlled by velocity to make controlled feedback noises (kinda like an ebow).

Ok. Well, the MD24 can output velocity values in a 7-bit parallel format. So if you can convert that to an analog signal for the coil (like with a parallel DAC) the MD24 could work.

You could also try the MPA:

...it has potentiometer outputs which could be used to generate a control voltage.

Otherwise, you're probably looking for a commercial MIDI-to-CV product.
