If you’re looking to get MIDI knowledge, macProVideo.com is the right place. In this collection of 45 AVID Learning Partner tutorial-videos by MIDI-Maestro Mike Watkinson, you’ll learn everything there is to know about MIDI in Pro Tools 10. Mike is Pro Tools certified. Not only does he know MIDI inside and out, he is a natural at teaching it!
After a Quick Start Introduction you dive right into MIDI set-up. You’ll learn how to enable tacks and set all the defaults for tempo, meter and key. Next is a section on MIDI recording: after Mike shows you how to set a count-off, and then dives into MIDI Merging, Loop Recording and more. This is followed by a series of videos about Pro Tools’ instruments: how to set them up and get them making some killer sounds!
Like audio, editing MIDI is an art. But it’s a bit different because you’re editing data instead of audio. This allows you to approach editing in a basic, note-driven musical way. Mike gives a great explanation of Pro Tools 10’s Smart Tool and the many different editing windows where MIDI can be viewed and edited, depending on the type of project and situation. This series of tutorial-videos concludes with a section on quantizing and how it can be customized depending upon the editing window and the desired results.

Great basic ground floor of using midi period. Plus some ventures into the virtual instruments. Wish there was a little more on that.

This is one of the better tutorials I have looked at.
It is great for the entry level Pro Tools Midi user and also for someone like me who knows Midi but has just switched to PT10.
Mike Watkinson gives you the information you need in an informative easy to understand way without the ego stamped rants of others I am currently watching in the PT10 tutorials.
Everything I wanted to know how to do was addressed and more.
I recomend this tutorial for anyone who needs to know about midid and PT10.
