If you’ve been around MIDI for any length of time, maybe you’ve come to Logic from a different daw, you might be wondering how does logic handle MIDI editing. The question I had was, “Is the MIDI event list accessible?”
As of the time of writing, the answer is no and yes. No, the notes in the list cannot currently be spoken by VoiceOver. Yes, there is a cute and very usable workaround for some of the things you might want to achieve.
When I turn to a MIDI event list, it’s normally because I’ve made a mistake which I want to correct without rerecording the passage. Either I’ve added an extra note that shouldn’t be there which needs deleting, I’ve pressed the wrong note so I need to change it, or, I’ve played a note too loudly or quietly so I need to change its velocity.
I’m sure that there are other uses you could come up with, but the good news is that all of these things can be achieved by the blind Logic user with Voiceover and I’m going to show you how.
The easiest way to do this is via an audio tutorial, so grab the MIDI Event List tutorial below.
