 Of Macs and MIDI

"Ask a typical Mac user the meaning of the term MIDI, and you'll probably get one of two responses: "You mean those cheesy music files you find on the cheesiest of Web sites?" or "Huh?" MIDI has gotten something of a bad rap, thanks to the Web. But in fact, it's an important music-making tool. The announcement of GarageBand earlier this year has brought the MIDI discussion to mainstream Mac users -- and for good reason. Thanks to this marvelous application, even people with the barest modicum of musical talent have turned their minds (and ears) to the tuneful potential of the Mac. If you want to gain a better understanding of what makes GarageBand groove, knowing a bit about MIDI helps. We'll provide some background and show you how to use MIDI files to expand GarageBand's repertoire."
