About This Class

This class is all about understanding the power of midi and midi fx.

Audio fx change the sound of you composition, but MIDI FX are able to change the notes. With the help of MIDI FX, you will learn how to create a rich piece of music by changing pitches, note length and velocities and give it a moving and changing feeling through chords, arpeggios and scales.

Your goal is to learn how to modify MIDI notes and create a short composition by using MIDI FX.
