MIDI MIDI (Audio)

File extension .midi
Category Audio File
Description The MIDI file was developed to allow both musicians and audio developers to transfer MIDI data from one software application to another. The MIDI file contains messages that specify notation, pitch, velocity and control signals for volume, vibrato, audio panning that synchronise tempo between multiple devices. Historically you would have needed four separate keyboard instruments, but now with MIDI files you can play multiple instruments from a single controller.

Technical Details MIDI messages are made up of 8-bit words that are transmitted serially at 31.25 kbaud. A MIDI link can carry sixteen independent channels of information, MIDI messages can be channel messages, which are sent on only one of the 16 channels and can be heard only by devices receiving on that channel, or system messages, which are heard by all devices. There are five types of message: Channel Voice, Channel Mode, System Common, System Real-Time, and System Exclusive. There are two variations of the Standard MIDI File format, called Type 0 and Type 1. Type 0 is a single track of data; Type 1 is multi-track.

FLAC FLAC (Audio)

File extension .flac
Category Audio File
Description Free Lossless Audio Codec, or FLAC for short, is an audio compression technique. It is a lossless compression type meaning that the compression takes place without data being discarded. FLAC is an open source codec. FLAC is a format that is recommended to those backing up a CD collection because the sound quality will remain high, whereas MP3 compression will result in a deterioration compared to the original.
Actions
Technical Details Using FLAC to compress an audio file to approximately 50% of its original size. The main benefits of a FLAC file in addition to it being lossless is that it can be used for streaming, and decoding is fast, allowing for real time decoding to take place. A FLAC file also contains several data integrity checks in the header file. The metadata associated with the audio has been future proofed also to allow new fields to be defined without impacting existing decoders.
