MIDI

Sound Production and Manipulation [SPM]  >  Electroacoustic Instruments  ]

MIDI is an abbreviation for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, which designates the standard protocol for communication between electronic instruments and equipment with MIDI implementation. This has proven to be of particular interest within electroacoustic music in the areas of sequencing, triggering and controlling. MIDI Devices allow for the sending and receiving of MIDI protocol messages. MIDI Interfaces enable MIDI instrument connection to a computer, which allows for computer control of other MIDI equipment. MIDI Controllers are potentiometers or other means available on MIDI synthesizers, which can be used to influence sonic parameters through MIDI messages e.g., a breath or foot controller, modulation wheel.
