i really i am not sure if it does for what i have.

i am using reaper for a DAW
Focusrite 2i4
Korg micro korg synth
nice digital piano that has midi.( i don't use it though, i have a beautiful upright for piano.

i have rocket 6's IIRC (i know they aren't the best but for two for $150 open box at GC on clearance).

so basically what do i have and would it be worth doing anything this? i like the microkorg a lot and am content as well. but can i do more?

are you trying to get an idea of what midi can do for you, or do you have something in mind already?

midi is a protocol that allows equipment to talk to each other. i believe it was originally used for communicating information so something like a button or wheel on one keyboard could control the parameters on another piece of equipment. it can also communicate note and duration (among many other parameters now), so it can map a song or control a virtual instrument. modern midi applications include sending signals to all kinds of equipment to control lights, trigger samples, switch amp channels, etc.

so you have to have some idea of what you want to do with midi if you want some advice on it.

sorry everyone, i don't really know what i was thinking, apologise. i was running out of the door and tried to get some ideas.

i will start from the beginning.

i listed everything that i have with midi capabilities.

here are the questions i should have typed out.

what are some ways that i can get them to work together?
what are possibilities.

for example one thing i would love would like to be able to use a keyboard for drums in Reaper (through the 2i4 focusrite interface)?

i really don't know.
i have looked around the net and don't know if i have all i need or what do i need or could benefit me. i know thats a bad excuse

Well, you could drive the micro synth with the digital piano, allowing for a full sized keyboard. Just MIDI out on the piano into MIDI in on the microsynth. Set them up on the same channel and it should pretty much just work.
Or you could take the MIDI out into the pc and redirect it wherever you want it to go.

Some nice vst soft synths out there so you can probably expand your sonic capabilities in the DAW as well.

You just have to read up on midi, plenty of explanations online, there are some books as well that are offered to recording engineers' curriculum.

pretty much control options are the only thing open for you, you can get really creative with midi so i can't make an exhaustive list of the options available. the big ones have already been hit on by cath and diabolical: using the larger digital keyboard to control either your microkorg or some software.

remember, you can usually also route controls to control parameters and not just the keys to control notes. you can get pretty creative and route multiple parameters to individual controls.

for example, if you have a software instrument controlled by a digital keyboard then you can probably do something like route a low pass filter's cutoff and feedback controls to a control wheel or knob and control both parameters with one control (complete with customized range and polarity). depending on you DAW you may also be able to control other separate plug-in effects as well as the instrument (all at the same time).

you can get pretty creative.
