HD-1 Drum Tutor

Q.Can I make my own original SMF data for the DT-HD1?

A. Yes, you can by using the General MIDI 2 (GM2) standard.

General MIDI 2
General MIDI provides a way to go beyond the limitations of proprietary designs, standardizing MIDI capabilities of sound generating devices. General MIDI 2 is upwardly compatible with General MIDI. General MIDI 2 compliant sound generators are capable of playing back music files that have either the General MIDI or General MIDI 2 logo.

SMF (Standard MIDI File)
SMFs (Standard MIDI Files) use a standard format for music files formulated so that the files could be widely compatible, regardless of the manufacturer of the device being used.
