Blue Mountain Arts is delighted to provide electronic greeting cards that offer the possibility of musical accompaniment. Many card users will be able to enjoy this music if they own computers that have an audio component (sound card) and speakers (which are turned on) and are using a web browser that is configured to play MIDI music.
MIDI (pronounced middy) is an acronym for Musical Instrument Digital Interface. Originally developed by the electronic music industry a number of years ago, the MIDI feature is available on most Macs and PCs with sound cards and allows
them to edit, store and play musical sound information.
To correctly receive and play the MIDI on our cards sound strongly suggest you upgrade to the following versions of browser software:
