Hi I am Kayahan.I am a Newbie for MIDI so I want learn programing and desing MIDI devices so Where and how I can learn MIDI ?
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.
