  Musical Instrument Digital Interface - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Musical Instrument Digital Interface, or MIDI, is an industry-standard electronic communications protocol that defines each musical note or event in an electronic musical instrument or show device such as a synthesizer, precisely and concisely, allowing electronic musical instruments, computers and other show equipment to exchange data in real time.
Electronic musical instruments, including synthesizers, samplers, drum machines, and electronic drums, which are used to perform music in real time and are inherently able to transmit a MIDI data stream of the performance.
Traditional instruments such as drums, pianos, and accordions which are outfitted with sensors and a computer which accepts input from the sensors and transmits real-time performance information as MIDI data.

Musical Instrument Digital Interface, or MIDI, is an industry-standard protocol that defines each note precisely and concisely, allowing electronic musical instruments and computers to talk to each other.
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.
From a musical perspective, GM has a mixed reputation, mainly because of small or large audible differences in corresponding instrument sounds across player implementations, the limited size of the instrument palette (128 instruments), its least-common denominator character, and the inability to add customized instruments to suit the needs of the particular piece.

All official MIDI standards are jointly developed and published by the MIDI Manufacturers Association (MMA) in Los Angeles, California, USA (http://www.midi.org), and for Japan, the MIDI Committee of the Association of Musical Electronic Industry (AMEI) in Tokyo (http://www.amei.or.jp).
Synchronization of MIDI sequences is made possible by the use of MIDI timecode, an implementation of the SMPTE time code standard using MIDI messages, and MIDI timecode has become the standard for digital music synchronization.
In MIDI, instruments (one per channel) are selected by number (0-127), using the Program Change message.

 Tutorial on MIDI and Music Synthesis
Digital sample-based synthesis systems may employ a variety of special techniques, such as sample looping, pitch shifting, mathematical interpolation, and digital filtering, in order to reduce the amount of memory required to store the sound samples (or to get more types of sounds from a given amount of memory).
The signal-to-quantizing noise ratio for a digitally sampled signal is limited by sample word size (the number of bits per sample), and by the amplitude of the digitized signal.
The requirements for music synthesizers in MPC level 1 and MPC level 2 systems are essentially the same, although the digital audio recording and playback requirements for MPC level 1 and MPC level 2 compliance are different.

As microcomputers, such as the Apple II became available, it wasn't long before instruments were hooked up through a MIDI interface to the computer as well as each other.

A MIDI operated music system can be compared to a pneumatically operated music system, in that a MIDI disk can be thought of as a piano roll, and a MIDI event decoder is similar to a piano tracker bar and valves.
As with roll-operated instruments, the holes in book music can be recorded as a MIDI file and can be decoded and used to operate electro-pneumatic valves in a book-operated organ (like a dance organ).
One way to record key-type book music is to build a keyframe and design the keys to operate small adjustable microswitches.

 UEE051H3 - MIDI Introduction
Pre-MIDI synthesisers were often equipped with interfaces to allow them to be controlled by other synthesisers (or vice-versa), but these interfaces were often specific to a particular manufacturer.
MIDI is a real-time interface, meaning that when one device sends a MIDI message to another, it intends the message to be acted upon immediately (ie in real-time).
Of course with a serial interface that can only carry one message at a time there will be some MIDI delay; in practice this will be so small as to be subjectively unnoticeable.
