    Hi all.

    Most will know. But I know there are some who will be shocked by my rhetorical statement!

    @DoubleTake Wow. Interesting. Not intentional, Sir/Madam. Rhetorical <statement>, as I said. Not meant to be replied to. I wonder why you did...
    So what's with your emojis?
    I posted this educational statement, for noobs, kiddies & Producers, because I got a notification telling me I've got a trophy and will get it if I post something.
    And because I'm pedantic and see this misunderstanding a lot!

    I don't think he meant it in a bad way, I think he was just kidding around, otherwise he wouldn't have liked your comment. :winker:

    all jokes aside, the new generation grew up with MIDI learn. and mouse clicks.... so who would care the real name of something

    MIDI (musical instrument digital interface) is many times also been called wrongly like. Music instrument direct information or. any other form. which makes me laugh .But again that knownledge doesn't buy new generations nothing. for them MIDI is or USB or what they see on their screen. And who can be against evolution. ... euh

    Thanks for clearing up the MIDI acronym! :winker: And Midi Hi-Fi, anyone?
    Yeah, but I've experienced that the new gen DO care enough about the name of something, at least to wrongly assume that it means continuous controller. Imho, that's devolution, not evolution.
    I can think of a situation where this misunderstanding causes confusion. Some MIDI hardware have hard-coded/unchangeable MIDI CC's on continuous controller pots. They be like "why can't I send the MIDI CC I want from this 'CC'! lol
    And of course other continuous controllers don't send any MIDI out at all. That knowledge could "buy new generations" something: time!
    Perhaps I'm part of the new gen from your point of view, as I've been clicking a mouse since the Atari/Steinberg days; it was nicer than using the Roland MC boxes prior!
    I still go 'Wow' at MIDI learn though! It's so cool.

    Yes, certainly. It's an abbreviation of 'Synthesizer Sex', which coincidentally is why I'm here.
    You're welcome.

    I'm saying "Some terribly witty statement about a pixel feedback loop that made my eyes go 'parfoit' as they exploded".
