what is do?
midi jack?.....allows you to hook up a midi connection, great for computer recording etc. I could be wrong.
I can't quite see in the picture.
But is it an XLR out along with the 1/4" jack?
Yeah I think thats a MIDI output jack.
looks like a mic jack. I guess MIDI uses the same jacks as mics?
no...midi uses a midi jack and mics use xlr jacks
they do look similar however, because they're both roundish with some metal pins or contacts in the middle.
From that picture it's hard to tell which it is, but I would think that it's a midi jack cuz that would make more sense right?
is it a speakon jack?
It's a midi jack.
They use it to get different sounds. Like vox, piano, etc etc. I don't find much of a pratical use for it personally.
i know Al Caldwell's 11-string has one.
Midi isn't a direct sound recording like microphone recording is.
Midi is the recording of the note information and such.
I saw on this show a guy that used midi to transcribe what he was playing directly into sheet music and tabs at the same time through a computer program, just by playing his bass hooked up to it.
He could then take that midi info and play what he just did on a keyboard, note for note while choosing if he wanted classical piano, organ, brass bells, whatever.
