I don't know if MIDI is black magic, but I have huge problems with it nontheless. :)

 

Every time I try to write a piece of music using MIDI as motif I run into problems. If you transpose the letters MIDI on the white keys (keep counting past G) you realize that MI forms the deadly tritone. Add to DI part an you end up with part of a diminished chord. :(:(

 

Who can work with this crap? Take it away. :D:D

PS: Anyobody notice that 666 are the first three notes of Jingle Bells (key of D flat)? It must mean something. :D:D

It's a scientific standard, silly, accepted everywhere (except Japan where it's not refered to as midi).

Camps are so divided on this, but I'm on the "I find it really useful" side. The five pin connector standard allows digital instruments to 'talk' with one another - so I don't really get the beef.

How has it done you wrong? ~nel

Hehe, good acronyms. How come you leave "pure as an angel" out of the Tallyrand quote?

 

A Midi is more like Wicca than Black Magic- the Mini skirt is however without doubt a diabolical invention, designed to inflame sinful lust in the hearts of men and thus damn them to everlasting hellfire, brimstone, and an eternity of bad-hair days.

It just occurred to me- those 5-pins... can you say PENTAGRAM?!?!

Midi, Mini, Mickey. M - I - C - K - E - Y M - O - U - S - E That's it.

 

Mickey's gotta be the most diabolical. Add the rat-kingdom, the movies, the paraphernalia. Separates parents from money faster than a state lottery can.

I am ashamed you had to ask about this.

 

Quite obviously NAMM is man spelled backwards, and old Satanic trick!!!

 

As you know these Satanists are busy reversing everything that is good. So what about the additional M you ask? ....well that's a spelling mistake. Reverse spelling is sometimes harder than it appears. ;)

lol, awesome... :)

a friend of mine once took the name "barney", and turned it into roman numerals somehow... he added the letters up and it equaled 666

 

so its quite obvious then that right now as we are calmly drinking coffee or playing innocent cristmas songs in the middle of january while our children watch thier cartoons that SATAN in files of evil plight has a plan to reformat my computer!!!

i see his evil plot.. plug in the midi he asks me.. it'll help you play music.. no sooner than a boy scout eating a girl scouts cookie that i plug it into my computer and BAM!!!

 

Im falling into the abyss with swarms of midi cables wrappping around me and horrible, horrible old school tracks of midi playing britney spears drown my ears...

can i escape?? is it possible? OH LORD!! sacred firewire save me!!!
