Class MidiFileFormat


public class MidiFileFormat
extends Object
A MidiFileFormat object encapsulates a MIDI file's type, as well as its length and timing information.

A MidiFileFormat object can include a set of properties. A property is a pair of key and value: the key is of type String, the associated property value is an arbitrary object. Properties specify additional informational meta data (like a author, or copyright). Properties are optional information, and file reader and file writer implementations are not required to provide or recognize properties.

The following table lists some common properties that should be used in implementations:

MIDI File Format Properties
Property key Value type Description
"author" String name of the author of this file
"title" String title of this file
"copyright" String copyright message
"date" Date date of the recording or release
"comment" String an arbitrary text
