In this 1986 instructional video, Toto keyboardist & composer Steve Porcaro talks about MIDI basics.

While the video is dated, it offers a vintage demonstration of a 80s MIDI electronic music production set up that was state-of-the-art for its time.

Porcaro’s setup includes a KX88 masterkeyboard, Yamaha TX modules , an Oberheim expander, DSX and DMX, LINN9000 , Minimoog, EMU II, Polyfusion modular & more.

In the second part, Porcaro covers routing to various destinations and in the third part, Porcaro looks at ‘organizing the madness’ with a sequencer.
