A ProV-Midifile is distinguished mainly by the fact that a Arranged Vocalist Track (AVH) is integrated on Channel 16, which contains the vocals harmonies (VH). This is what the "V" means. Otherwise, it corresponds to the sound formats and adaptations of a Pro-Midifile.

- The channel assignment / Stucture is valid for all formats.
- ProV-Midifiles are not available for Instumental songs. These may are available as a Pro-Midifile.
