The issues that digital musicians up against playing their arrangements on equipment made by different manufacturers was a critical one in the 1980s.

Attach a Controller made by one manufacturer to a sound component made by another manufacturer, and your flute solo might emerge as a drum solo. You could try altering the quantity and find yourself changing the frequency rather. This is because MIDI directions, which are used to regulate all facets of the formula from notes performed, device used, size, pitch, and many other parameters, are mathematical, and once upon a period (indicating the 1980s) different companies used different features to correspond with different MIDI Command numbers. As an example, the quantity corresponding to a sound on one brand of equipment may correspond to a harmonica sound on another brand of equipment.

There were a number of other issues as well, most of them arising from too little standardization of the correspondence between MIDI Command numbers and the specific parameters that they altered. For this reason, the General MID (GM) standard is made so that all (or the majority of) the figures used to create any particular MIDI command would do the same on any make of equipment that involved the General MIDI standard for example, the quantity 12 located at a certain point in the string of digits that represents any MIDI command today causes any GM standard sound element to perform a sound, and nothing else.

This sound may differ significantly on different sound modules (sound quality will change depending on what sort of technology it employs) and how expensive the sound element is, but at least you will not wind up playing a flute in place of a vibraphone.

The GM standard included a number of standardizations besides MIDI directions for example, it required all GM certified sound modules to be fully multi-timbral that is, each sound module had to be able to receive MIDI communications on 16 different channels, so that the sound module may play 16 different spots (equivalent to 16 different instruments) simultaneously, corresponding to the 16 available MIDI channels..
