Basic Information about MIDI's
What is a MIDI?
MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface and has been the rage among electronic musicians throughout its six year existence. It is a powerful tool for composers and teachers alike. It allows musicians to be more creative on stage and in the studio. It allows composers to write music that no human could ever perform. But it is NOT a tangible object, a thing to be had. MIDI is a communications protocol that allows electronic musical instruments to interact with each other.
Computer manufacturers soon realized that the computer would be a fantastic tool for MIDI, since MIDI devices and computers speak the same language.
