What is MIDI?MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) allows virtual instruments, like a piano or drums, to communicate with the software on your computer or other devices. MIDI files contain musical data, such as notes played, tempo, and controller messages.The main difference between MIDI and audio files is that recordings in audio formats are in wave form and can’t be edited as easily after they’ve been created.MIDI data lets music makers create and manipulate digital sounds using a separate controller, such as a keyboard or drum pad.
What is a MIDI editor?MIDI files are created and edited using a MIDI editor. This software application lets you control the musical arrangement, such as adjusting the timing of MIDI notes and modifying the velocity or pitch of individual notes.You can also create new MIDI tracks and sequences from scratch with a MIDI editor.
