Usually, there's not a lot that you need to do with midi. It's just the data that devices send to each other, and the devices take care of most things..

It would be helpful if you said more about what you're thinking of doing (programming) that would involve midi.

Otherwise, there are documents that you can get via this web site that might be a help. The best thing would be to get the detailed specification for Midi Files, and then start with programs that either manipulate existing midi files, or create new ones. You would be able to find various examples of such software, in various languages, to download via the web. Then study the contents of existing midi files to understand how they work.

Regarding the programming, which language were you thinking of using?

I'm not at all sure how midi gets involved in this. Wouldn't you just use voltages?

Otherwise, you'll need some sort of logic circuitry to convert the foot press into midi data, numbers, at one end, and then something at the other end to convert the midi numbers back into something useful, maybe a voltage, to control the preamp? Not quite sure where the IR (infra-red ?) fits in.

Hello Kayahan,

I am a newbie to MIDI as well. I am learning at MiraCosta Community College in Oceanside, CA, through the Music Technology program. There are other schools around that you may want to look into that offer a Music Technology program, but if your in the San Diego area I definitely recommend checking out MiraCosta. There is a lot to learn in the MIDI world, but joining this website and reaching out for help is a great start to your journey. Keep asking questions and thankfully with the immense amount of information we have on the internet and just this website alone, you can be able to learn in many different ways, but experience will be the best way to learn. Learning a new skill requires time. You got to put in the time. I got to take my own words into consideration and keep at it too. Don't give up!
