One of the topics covered in Audio Concepts 106: Audio and MIDI Signal Flow is the optimal use of audio and MIDI flow in a software-based/in-the-box studio setup. You’ll need the proper wiring to make sure audio and MIDI can travel to and from the computer. Another key step is to bypass the computer’s own proprietary sound card so you can use something a little more sophisticated. Watch the full video to see Joe Albano — a true expert — demonstrate some of the major concepts.
- If one wants to ensure a smooth workflow and achieve great results in his audio, he has to understand how audio and MIDI flow.
- The video contains in the piece starts with the differences between hardware and software-based audio setups, detailing the wiring that is needed for each.
- Joe in the video demonstrates how to set up the different audio connections, including setting up powered and passive monitors and more.
“As far as audio goes, XLR, TRS, TS and RCA connections can be found in various combinations on most gear and you’ll want to bypass your computer’s internal sound card to use a higher quality audio interface.”
