Uses of Package
javax.sound.midi

Packages that use javax.sound.midi
javax.sound.midi Provides interfaces and classes for I/O, sequencing, and synthesis of MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) data. 
javax.sound.midi.spi Supplies interfaces for service providers to implement when offering new MIDI devices, MIDI file readers and writers, or sound bank readers. 
 

Classes in javax.sound.midi used by javax.sound.midi
ControllerEventListener
          The ControllerEventListener interface should be implemented by classes whose instances need to be notified when a Sequencer has processed a requested type of MIDI control-change event.
Instrument
          An instrument is a sound-synthesis algorithm with certain parameter settings, usually designed to emulate a specific real-world musical instrument or to achieve a specific sort of sound effect.
InvalidMidiDataException
          An InvalidMidiDataException indicates that inappropriate MIDI data was encountered.
MetaEventListener
          The MetaEventListener interface should be implemented by classes whose instances need to be notified when a Sequencer has processed a MetaMessage.
MetaMessage
          A MetaMessage is a MidiMessage that is not meaningful to synthesizers, but that can be stored in a MIDI file and interpreted by a sequencer program.
MidiChannel
          A MidiChannel object represents a single MIDI channel.
MidiDevice
          MidiDevice is the base interface for all MIDI devices.
MidiDevice.Info
          A MidiDevice.Info object contains assorted data about a MidiDevice, including its name, the company who created it, and descriptive text.
MidiEvent
          MIDI events contain a MIDI message and a corresponding time-stamp expressed in ticks, and can represent the MIDI event information stored in a MIDI file or a Sequence object.
MidiFileFormat
          A MidiFileFormat object encapsulates a MIDI file's type, as well as its length and timing information.
MidiMessage
          MidiMessage is the base class for MIDI messages.
MidiUnavailableException
          A MidiUnavailableException is thrown when a requested MIDI component cannot be opened or created because it is unavailable.
Patch
          A Patch object represents a location, on a MIDI synthesizer, into which a single instrument is stored (loaded).
Receiver
          A Receiver receives MidiEvent objects and typically does something useful in response, such as interpreting them to generate sound or raw MIDI output.
Sequence
          A Sequence is a data structure containing musical information (often an entire song or composition) that can be played back by a Sequencer object.
Sequencer
          A hardware or software device that plays back a MIDI sequence is known as a sequencer.
Sequencer.SyncMode
          A SyncMode object represents one of the ways in which a MIDI sequencer's notion of time can be synchronized with a master or slave device.
ShortMessage
          A ShortMessage contains a MIDI message that has at most two data bytes following its status byte.
Soundbank
          A Soundbank contains a set of Instruments that can be loaded into a Synthesizer.
SoundbankResource
          A SoundbankResource represents any audio resource stored in a Soundbank.
Synthesizer
          A Synthesizer generates sound.
Track
          A MIDI track is an independent stream of MIDI events (time-stamped MIDI data) that can be stored along with other tracks in a standard MIDI file.
Transmitter
          A Transmitter sends MidiEvent objects to one or more Receivers.
VoiceStatus
          A VoiceStatus object contains information about the current status of one of the voices produced by a Synthesizer.

InvalidMidiDataException
          An InvalidMidiDataException indicates that inappropriate MIDI data was encountered.
MidiDevice
          MidiDevice is the base interface for all MIDI devices.

          A MidiDevice.Info object contains assorted data about a MidiDevice, including its name, the company who created it, and descriptive text.
MidiFileFormat
          A MidiFileFormat object encapsulates a MIDI file's type, as well as its length and timing information.
Sequence
          A Sequence is a data structure containing musical information (often an entire song or composition) that can be played back by a Sequencer object.
Soundbank
          A Soundbank contains a set of Instruments that can be loaded into a Synthesizer.
