  • Page 21: Midi Audio Guidelines

    MIDI Audio Guidelines The following are suggested guidelines to maximize sound quality while reducing the overall file size of a MIDI Ring Tone file for use with the Motorola E398 handset. Tip 1: Use MIDI’s running status feature In the MIDI standard, a key-on or a key-off event will use, at most, three bytes each.
  • Page 22 track per used MIDI channel. That is, if a temple/conductor track exists, merge it with the first instrument track and remove all unnecessary meta-events such as the “track name” and “lyric” meta-events. To summarize, the following measures can be taken in order to reduce the SMF: 1.

    Sound Multifunction Transducer Frequency Response - In Application 1000 10000 Frequency, Hz However, the transducer will also reproduce vibration signals at its vibration resonant frequency of 157Hz. The nearest synthesized note is D#1 (i.e. the first D# below Middle C). For long duration continuous signals at the vibration resonant frequency, the maximum amplitude should be restricted to 15dB below maximum to avoid distortion.

    MIDI piano-like instruments may be represented by a single piano sound – Acoustic Grand Piano may sound like Electric Piano 2). The Motorola E398 handset support the full instrument set with very limited re-mapping. The General MIDI Percussion Map will be used for the drum part, so no instrument should be specified for the variations of the drum part.
  • Page 27: Tempo

    Sound Tempo The tempo of the base track must be specified at a time 0 of the base track file. Tempo is specified in microseconds per quarter note in a standard MIDI “Set Tempo” meta-event. If the tempo is not set in the MIDI file, or is not set at time 0, the tempo will default to 500,000 microseconds per quarter note (120 beats per minute).
