What Does MIDI Stand For?

MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. It is a technical standard that allows communication between electronic musical instruments and computer equipment, using an interface that a user can easily access. A single link can be used to to route various channels to several other devices.

MIDI is a useful application for musicians to create and edit digital records. MIDI saves the notes, the length of the notes, voice alterations, tempo and the type of instruments played. At the click of a button on the computer interface, all these parameters can be controlled by the user. To record and play MIDI files, compatible software and hardware are required.
