In the News (Tue 16 Oct 18)

  
  Musical Instrument Digital Interface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The MIDI standard was first proposed by Dave Smith in 1981 in a paper to the Audio Engineering Society and the MIDI Specification 1.0 was published in August 1983.
MIDI is almost directly responsible for bringing an end to the "wall of synthesizers" phenomenon in 1970s-80s rock music concerts, when musical keyboard performers were sometimes hidden behind banks of various instruments.
MIDI messages are extremely compact, due to the low bandwidth of the connection, and the need for near real-time accuracy.

The MIDI standard was published in August 1983.
When a MIDI instrument is capable of producing several independent sounds simultaneously (a multi-timbral instrument), MIDI channels are used to address these sections independently.
Although nowadays most PC soundcards have the ability to terminate a MIDI connection (usually through a MIDI-IN/MIDI-OUT converter on the game port), the 1985 Atari ST was the first home computer to sport the original five-pin format — which made the ST a very popular platform for running MIDI sequencer software.

 What is MIDI?
In a nutshell, that's what MIDI is -- a set of commands that electronic devices digitally pass between their MIDI jacks to tell each other what to do (ie, what actions to perform).
Because MIDI is a digital signal, it's very easy to interface electronic instruments to computers, and then do things with that MIDI data on the computer with software.
The great advantage of MIDI is that the "notes" and other musical actions, such as moving the pitch wheel, pressing the sustain pedal, etc, are all still separated by messages on different channels.

 MIDI Yoke Junction
The powerful nature of MIDI Yoke requires that a bit of care be exercised in its use: do not connect the outputs of one port to the same number inputs within a single application.
When this happens, any MIDI message sent to the output port is immediately routed back to the input port, which is then sent out the output port and immediately routed back to the input port...
MIDI Yoke attempts to detect this condition and will break the connection when it is detected.

 Making Music (and More) with MIDI
MIDI ring tones sound far better because they are polyphonic (play more than one note at one time) and because they use music synthesizers which produce a wider variety of sounds than possible before.
And since each instrument in a MIDI performance is separate from the rest, its easy to "solo" (listen to just one) individual instruments and study them for educational purposes, or to mute individual instruments in a song so that you can play that part yourself.
MIDI files are perfect for practicing with, as well as for performing when additional musicians are not available.

 MIDI Papa´s - The MIDI FAQ by CC
MIDI worked alright, and the devices from different manufacturers could indeed communicate, but the results were sometimes unexpected.
When a MIDI message tells a synthesizer to use instrument number 12 (and that IS how it works) then one synthesizer would generate the sound of a vibraphone and another one would generate the sound of a violin.
So if you don't quantize the MIDI file to put all notes "on the beat" and make their duration a recognizable 1/32 or a multiple of that, it will be hard to read the sheet music.
