Default Where do you find good MIDI files?

I do a lot of work analyzing other writer's works. It gives me a lot of insight into how to create a sound that I would like to use in one of my arrangements. As I try to get into the more sophisticated aspects of the differences between the recordings of human players and music generated on a PC, I find that I can get a lot out of looking at the Notation Composer display of a midi file. I have done general internet searches and found a few good hits, but does anyone know of some particularly good websites that would be best for above-average midi files?

Default Variety (oldies, jazz, pop, Christmas)

Hi Ralph,

Don Carroll has some pages with a lot of good tunes - quite the mix. Oldies, jazz, pop, Christmas - he's got a lot of nicely done files that are often found on others' "gathered" pages. You can find his site at Near the bottom of the page you can navigate to other pages of his as well (the link above is just for songs that begin with A-G).

I know there are a lot of pages out there - anyone else have some favorites?


p.s. We have had to move the MIDI file directory that used to be hosted on the Notation Software website to
Music is to the soul like water is to green growing things.

Default Re: Where do you find good MIDI files?

This is a pay site, but it's probably the ultimate in classical music:

Here's a fun site with tons of old tunes, both known and unknown, up to 1922 (American copyright has been extended backward that far -- not so for other countries):

So many others!
