Terry Lawless is an expert at all things MIDI. When the language first came out, it was hard for most people to learn and especially difficult to program. However, Terry, who had just completed both a math and music degree, was very comfortable with MIDI and used his skills to help program for acts such as Paula Abdul, Janet Jackson, and many other rising stars. To this day, Terry still owns just about every synth and keyboard he has ever purchased, making for one great MIDI instrument collection.
