MIDI is a form of electronic musical notation understood by synthesisers, keyboards and PC sound cards, i.e. a MIDI file is not a recording, but a set of instructions on how to play a piece of music, rather like a printed musical score. In general, MIDI files are small and compact and therefore quick to download.
Please note that MIDI files can sound different when played on different machines. Whilst the pitch and rhythm will always be the same, the timbre or ¡°colour¡± of instrumental sounds can vary depending on the quality of the equipment.
It is also possible to use digitally recorded audio in the form of .MP3 or .WAV files. However, these files take up a relatively large amount of space and therefore bandwidth and download-time. For the benefit of users with slower connections, it is best not to use them as background sound but as download-on-request files.
