MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, and is a worldwide stan-
dard for exchanging various types of musical data between electronic musical
instruments and computers.
When MIDI cables are used to connect two or more MIDI devices, performance
data can be exchanged between the devices, even if they were made by differ-
MIDI data can also be exchanged between the minilogue and your personal
computer using a single USB cable. The minilogue lets you assign MIDI control
change numbers (CC#) to the major parameters that affect the sound, and con-
trol these parameters from an external MIDI sequencer while you play the tone
generator. You can also use the front panel knobs or buttons to transmit these
control change messages, in order to control an external MIDI device.
You can also synchronize the minilogue's tempo to the MIDI clock of an ex-
ternal MIDI sequencer or other device, so that the minilogue will play in time
with the external device and with any changes you make.
Connecting Devices via MIDI and USB
Controlling an external MIDI device from the minilogue
If you want to use the minilogue's keyboard, controllers, and sequencer to play
sounds on or to control an external MIDI tone generator, connect the mini-
logue's MIDI OUT connector to the external MIDI tone generator's MIDI IN
connector using a MIDI cable.
