More precisely, MIDI encodes what instrument is to play which note for what
duration of time, which means that a clarinet playing the note D for two seconds
can be encoding in three bytes rather than more than two million bits when
Next, we divide the remaining seven bits of the byte into two groups, or fields, the
exponent field and the mantissa field. Let us designate the three bits following the
sign bit as the exponent field and the remaining four bits as the mantissa field.
For example, using dotted decimal notation, the pattern 5.2 would represent the
two-byte bit pattern 0000010100000010, which Consists of the byte 00000101 (
represented by 5) followed by the byte 00000010 (represented by 2), and the ...
