Further details:

MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) file is a type of digital file that encodes a sequence of instructions to play a series of notes on a musical instrument.

It is not an audio file like a WAV or MP3, but rather a set of instructions for synthesizers and other electronic music instruments to follow.

These instructions include information such as what notes to play, how long to play them, how loud to play them, and what instrument sound to use. This allows for precise control over the music, and also makes MIDI files much smaller than audio files. MIDI-sequention sound refers to the sequence of sounds that are produced when the instructions in the MIDI file are followed by a synthesizer or other electronic music instrument.
