CCARH Database Formats: MIDI1

MIDI1 is data derived from the MuseData encoding of music. MIDI1 data is given in the Standard MIDI File format which is a binary format.

MIDI1 files are strictly quantized and are best suited to printing and analysis applications. In addition, enriched information facilitating the correct enharmonic interpretation is contained in the velocity byte (please see Beyond MIDI, pp. 99-104, for the description of MIDI1).
