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. For example, MIDI files can be transposed, the tempo can be changed, or sheet music can be printed from the file. They are especially useful for practicing. For this reason, a plethora of MIDI files are provided for free below. To add your own MIDI files to the collection, simply contact us.

In order to use MIDI files, you must have MIDI player installed on your computer. If you don't have a MIDI player yet, you can download one from one of the following sites...
