The basic setup for your audio/MIDI processing was described in Chapter 1 and is
illustrated again here in Figure 6.5. This setup shows the computer handling the audio and MIDI
processing. These functions are generally handled by audio/MIDI processing programs like
Apple Logic, Cakewalk Sonar, Ableton Live, Steinberg Nuendo, or Digidesign Pro Tools, all of
which provide a software interface for connecting the microphone, MIDI controller, sequencer,
and output. All of these software systems handle both digital audio and MIDI processing, with
samplers and synthesizers embedded. Details about particular configurations of hardware and
software are given in Section 6.1.2.
