Midi CAN be terrible! There's no doubt of that. But midi can be sublime as well, with the right equipment and taking care to create a real performace file, not just a mechanical note-by-note transcription. I use a Korg N5 synthesizer/keyboard which is not top-of-the-line, but has pretty darn good orchestral sounds. I also use Giga Studio sampling synthesizer which has incredible orchestral and solo instrument sounds. As for performance standards, I recently spent easily 3 months on my midi performance of the first movement of Beethoven's 6th. And that 3 months of work started AFTER I got all the notes entered. That's 3 months (evenings and weekends only) of performance dynamics work. THAT kind of midi can be wonderful. --gary
