MIDI and Recording with Michael Bauer

This clinic will be focused around the beginner / bedroom recording artist who may or may not already have some knowledge regarding recording, and is interested in getting into the world of MIDI.

Michael will explain the basic types of MIDI controllers, their main functions, the basic routing of MIDI to either hardware (synths) or to the DAW of your preference as well as suggesting some tips and tricks to adding virtual instruments, effects and useful controls to your tracks.
