A2 MIDI Analysis exam

A2 MIDI analysis exam


The Controlling and interpreting MIDI data exam is hard! The exam is very hard to complete in the time given to complete it. Therefore we try to do as much of this as possible in lessons.

 You have a MIDI file of a song and a studio recording of that same song. You also get a full musical score to look at.

You then have a question sheet that will ask you different questions, ranging from chord identification through to suggesting a more effective way of programming in a “face-melter” of a guitar solo.

 To do well in this exam, students need a good solid knowledge of how MIDI data is used and have secure musical theory knowledge, along with knowledge of different playing techniques of instruments and sound recording technology.


I will be putting up some MIDI information and links in here soon!!! I promise.
