Channel Voice

« Back to Glossary Index

A classification of MIDI channel message relating specifically to a musical performance, where features of the performance (notes, articulation, etc.) are individually described by a unique message. Channel Voice messages include Note On, Note Off, Polyphonic Key Pressure, Channel Pressure, Program Change, Pitch-bend, and Controller Change. These messages all include a specific channel number, allowing similar messages to address different devices on the same MIDI network. The message will only be implemented by a receiving device whose channel number matches that of the message.
