midi stage lighting controllers on the web
MIDI is a technology that represents music only in digital form. Unlike other digital music technologies such as MP3 and CDs, MIDI messages contain individual instructions for playing each individual note of each individual instrument. So with MIDI it is actually possible to change just only one note in a song, or to orchestrate and entire song with entirely different instruments. And since each instrument in a MIDI performance is separate from the rest, its easy to «solo» (listen to just one) individual instruments and study them for educational purposes, or to mute individual instruments in a song so that you can perform that part yourself.
There are over 250 companies around the world making products that support MIDI — well known companies such as Apple and Microsoft, Roland and Yamaha, Nokia and Sony/Ericsson, and others.

MIDI stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface and has been the rage among electronic musicians throughout its six year existence. It is a powerful tool for composers and teachers alike. It allows musicians to be more creative on stage and in the studio. It allows composers to commit to paper music that no human could ever perform. Nevertheless it is NOT a tangible entity, a part to be had. MIDI is a communications protocol that allows electronic musical instruments to interact with each other.
