MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. It is a technology which allows music to be encoded in digital form. Comparable to a digital equivalent of sheet music in many ways, MIDI files contain only the bare bones data necessary to recreate a musical piece, not an actual recording of it as, for example, mp3 files do. As a result, MIDI files are extremely compact when compared to other digital music formats. This has made them popular in environments where small file sizes are at a premium such as mobile phones and web pages.

Most modern sound cards and software audio players are capable of playing MIDI files. They can be created using software known as a sequencer ~ which could be described as the musical equivalent of a word processor.

As with sheet music, the quality of the ultimate rendering, when the raw data is actually performed as music, can vary dramatically. Higher-end sound cards will be capable of rendering the MIDI instrument sounds with richness and depth while, on less sophisticated equipment, they may sound tinny and inauthentic.

The term MIDI file conveys the idea of a file that collects and saves messages in a computer and it is also known with the name of standard MIDI file. This kind of file is being created with the use of desktop or laptop and in these equipments also it is being created by software that is known to the world as sequencing software. The work that this software does is that it organizes messages into a few parallel tracks and by arranging them in this way, it records it independently and also edit it. In most of the softwares or sequencers, you will find that each of the tracks is assigned to the channel specific to it and thus it performs its job.

If you are also intending to fit this software in your computer, do it as early as possible as it is considered as one of the best softwares.
