A Musical Instrument Digital Interface (MIDI) controller is an electronic device used for playing, editing, and recording music. Primarily used to trigger sounds and control the parameters of electronically-generated music, MIDI controllers work with MIDI-enabled electronic instruments such as keyboards, electric guitars, synths, drums, electronic wind instruments, and more. MIDI controllers are great not only for crafting traditional performances, but also for experimenting with alternative audio—offering more flexibility and functionality so you can create a one-of-a-kind sound.
MIDI controllers offer precision control of the music-making experience, whether you’re composing, mixing tracks, mastering, or simply playing around with audio options. This offers more intuitive navigation of your Digital Audio Workstation (DAW) than through a computer keyboard and mouse.
For easier use, MIDI Controllers may be laid out like a traditional piano keyboard, complete with black and white keys. Alternatively, they may have a performance pad layout (like a percussion pad or drum pad). Whether it’s by key or by pad, MIDI Controllers give you tactile control over your sound. Some other control methods may include sliders, knobs, buttons, pedals, and other sensors for more hands-on adjustments.
