understanding midi

I’ve been using a Novation Sl MkII for quite awhile now via automap with cubase 6.5 but know I’m not using it to its full potential. I’ve also recently purchased and Alesis midi drum controller (love it), and have the same problem with it.

I’m looking for a hard copy manual that teaches about midi in depth and it’s application with midi controllers and software and how best to use these interfaces? So far no luck.

Check out the MIDI 101 section in our knowledge base. There are a couple different attached beginner’s articles and some specific Cubase setup advice and tricks. Hopefully something you’ll need.
