Virtual Midi Piano Keyboard is a powerful MIDI event generating and keyboard controller. It does not create any actual sound on its own, but rather, is used to operate a MIDI synthesizer (both software or hardware, external or internal). With a simple click of the mouse, you can play incoming MIDI data to a virtual piano keyboard. You can also use both the mouse and the keyboard to manipulate MIDI data. For instance, you can play a chord sequence, a scale, or even a tempo.
Virtual midi yokes are nothing more than cables that connect your VSTs, RTAS, Cubase, Nuendo, Sonar, or other software instruments to your host computer via virtual MIDI. There are many different types of midi cables you can use. In general, the cables will have male connectors, female connectors, and a ground wire. Some of the most common midi cables are:
Many professional home studio musicians use virtual midi cables to bring multiple synthesizers and audio tracks together so that they can then be played back together in a composition. The way it works is quite simple. When you start a new composition, all you need to do is launch your virtual midi interface. From there, launch any number of your favorite synthesizers and record an audio track of your choice. When you want to stop the recording, simply click on the record button and all the sounds will come to an end. Using this method, you can generate an endless amount of new sounds and melodies, something that would be impossible with out midi connections on a traditional keyboard or midi device.
