Musical Instrument Digital Interface, or MIDI, is an music file that allows computers and instruments to "talk" to each other. For example a pinaist can play an acompinaiment into a MIDI keyboard and it will record the music as data. The difference between MIDI files and normal audio recording is that MIDI stores the musical information as data (notes) and not sound. Because of this MIDI offeres many options to musicians.
