MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, which is a communications and control protocol. It is used when making electronic music to send information between electronic musical instruments and computers. A MIDI expert is an experienced engineer or specialist in this protocol, who can help with a variety of projects.
When deciding what kind of project you want to hire the MIDI expert for, consider the scope, objectives and complexity of what needs to be accomplished. Maybe it's something like programming from scratch or maybe it's simply tweaking existing pieces of audio. Whatever the case may be, it's important that you are crystal clear about the specifics of the job so that you can properly assess the skills and experience of the applicants.
During the interviewing process, it is important to not only ask general questions about the applicant's work experience, but also ask specific questions such as their portfolio of work, whether they have any certifications, programming languages they are comfortable with, any other industry related standards they are aware of, or past projects with similar requirements. You should also pay attention to their communication style as well as their problem solving abilities. Finally, discuss a realistic budget based on the scope of your project. Most midi experts charge an average hourly rate of $30 - $60 per hour depending on their experience level and expertise.
