This project has been an eye-opening experience for all 3 of us. We learnt a lot more about MIDI in a lot of aspects, such as its background, difference between analogue music and digital music, how MIDI started, General MIDI, MIDI file formats, uses of MIDI, its advantages and disadvantages. Although MIDI music may be easy to generate and convenient, its sound quality may not be as good as real live music. After distributing our surveys to 50 people, regardless of their sexes, ages, jobs and interests, we got the result that actually, it is not possible to accurately point out that MIDI music or real live music is better, as different people have different opinions. It only depends on their own tastes. Nevertheless, MIDI music does have its own advantages, and that it really does mark a modern development in technologies nowadays.?
In this website, we focus on MIDI music, which can be generated through computers. Besides gaining plenty of new knowledge about MIDI music, we have also learnt a lot of things after creating this website.
We enjoyed generating our own music in AnvilStudio the most as we thought that it was a truly creative and fun way to compose your own music, especially when you can play it back after composing. The best things is that we actually used our compositions as ringtones for our mobile phones. It is so cute!
The most joyful event was at the end, when all the parts were inserted to their respective pages on the webpage. We felt a surge of pride as we scrolled though our webpage, which is done under a long period of patience, problem-solving, failures and most importantly, our whole hear of devotion.
To conclude, creating this website is definitely a fruitful experience for three of us. It doesn't only consist of researching on the topic, the best thing is the entire process of making the webpage. It is just like the growth of a fruit treeˇXwith sufficient sunlight, water and nutrients, it can grow in a normal (or quick) speed. Finally, after long period of time, the fruit of the tree, which symbolizes our webpage, will grow in a unique way that no other people can imitate.
