Hello! I'm posting in this section even though I worked with MIDI extensively from the late 80's to late 90's, but only started back again this past month or so. Guess you could say I'm an experienced newbie, lol.
I have a few hundred MIDIs on old 3.5 floppies, all created with the Roland MC50mkII sequencer. While going through them, I see that I used a lot of NRPN and RPN commands; specifically controllers 100, 101 and 6.
The problem is I can't for the life of me remember WHY I used them. Googling information on it only gives me basic info on what they're for. However, I can't find any real world examples of why a person would use them.
Can anyone provide such examples? It's possible I don't need them anymore, but before I disregard them, I need to know either way. What I'm doing currently is migrating all my MIDIs over to a DAW environment, and want to know what to keep or discard.
Thanks for any help or direction on this, and I'm also very happy to be part of the MIDI Association. Where were you all 25 years ago? haha
