How to get started with Midi?

Post by turbomartin » Fri Nov 17, 2006 12:48 pm

Hi all, i'm working with ableton for a few weeks now... All i can make is just beats and rhythms (which is cool offcourse), but i just don't get it how the Midi-stuff works?

I want to put some fat basslines under my beats.

Can anyone give a simple explanation how to get things going exactly?

I hope that i won't get killed for making a topic like this on this forum... anyway, thanks in advance!

1. go to kvraudio.com, get the plugin called Triangle II.
2. install it.
3. drop it in a track
4. Pick one of the presets called "BassXXX".
5. Click the record button on the track and fiddle on your computer keyboard.
6. More bonus fun: put arpeggiator on track in front of Triangle II. Fiddle on computer keyboard.
