Part IV: Working With MIDI >  Using the Virtual Sound Canvas-DXi

Chapter 12. Using the Virtual Sound Canvas-DXi

MIDI is a powerful language for controlling synthesizers, and SONAR 3 gives you every bit of control the MIDI language allows. One of the great things about MIDI is that it uses a common set of instructions that can be applied to any MIDI-capable synthesizer, regardless of its brand, model, or vintage. That means that all of the tools and functions in the next few chapters will work on whatever synthesizers you already own. To keep things consistent, though, I'll use the Edirol Virtual Sound Canvas-DXi (VSC) that is included with SONAR 3. It's a software synthesizer—sometimes called virtual instruments—that runs directly within SONAR. Depending on your level of previous experience with MIDI synthesizers, you will probably find it useful to follow along using the VSC and then later apply the lessons to other instruments. In this chapter you will learn how to:

  • Use the Synth Rack to start the VSC

  • Assign MIDI track outputs

  • Change patches on the VSC

  • Control the tempo of a project
