General MIDI Tone

The General MIDI standard defines the tone numbering
sequence, the drum sound numbering sequence, the number
of MIDI channels that can be used, and other general factors
that determine the sound source configuration. Because of
this, musical data produced on a General MIDI sound source
can be played back using similar tones and identical nuances
as the original, even when played on another manufacturers
sound source.
This keyboard conforms with General MIDI standards, so it
can be connected to a computer and used to play back General
MIDI data that has been purchased, downloaded from the
Internet, or obtained from any other source.
