ExtensionSmallImg What is .mid file?

MID file extension is the standard extension used by MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) music files. It is used by music authoring and mixing programs as well as MIDI hardware devices. It contains music data, such as the notes that are played, when they are played, how long each note is held, and how loud each note is played. The MID file format was developed to transfer data between applications for musicians and audio developers, permitting them to play multiple files from a single controller. MID file does not contain any music itself but it contains the features of the music data and can be played using software instruments that are capable to interpret the data confined in the MID file. The files contain specifications for various parameters like notation, pitch, velocity, and control signals. All of these help in tempo control for multiple devices.
