Midis and Music

vintagekeyskeyboardlg_400One of my hobbies is playing the piano, composing music and sequencing music. These days, I tend to play a lot of Video Game music, especially NES and SNES games and still compose some strange pieces of music. I use two (2) applications to do so. The first is ancient, but there's a reason I still use it. It's a 16 year old program called Midisoft Studio 4 and anyone who has seen and used the application will understand why there is no need to upgrade. It even bares the 'For Windows 3.1' words down the bottom right, and even though it's a 16 bit application, it runs under Windows Vista! The second program I use, I've only just stumbled across and I now use it generally for a 'typing keyboard', and for replacing the sound fonts than my aging SoundBlaster AWE64 Gold (yet another 16 year old ISA piece of equipment). This program is called FL Studio 6, and no it doesn't replace Midisoft Studio 4. Anyway, here is a list of my compilations, sequences etc... free for download.


gmlogoThe IT Crowd Theme (MIDI)

This is a replica of quite a funny BBC TV Show, The IT Crowd which is a show about 3 people working in IT, and how they are social outcasts. I absolutely loved the show, and so much so that I made this midi as a ring tone for my mobile phone simply because I couldn't find a midi anywhere on the internet at the time. Anyway, this is only a midi and will work on mobile phones that support polyphonic ring tones. The midi file has had its instruments optimised for a Microsoft GM Wavetable Synth which if you don't have a Sound Blaster soundcard, then chances are you have the General ordinary one from Microsoft.

gmlogoTechno Theme (MIDI)

This is a strange techno theme that starts off as a happy tune into a darker mood. Was originally composed for a friend, and as he has finished with the use for his project, it's now time I release it. The midi file has been optimised for a SoundBlaster AWE64 soundcard, and therefore may sound tinny or different on a normal sound card. For this reason, both an WMA and MIDI have been uploaded.

gmlogo"Weird Al" Yankovic - Virus Alert (MIDI and MP3)

As I needed a new ringtone, I thought I would sequence this song. Basically the song is about a virus that came in an e-mail with a subject called "Stinky Cheese". Apparently this virus make your TV record Gili, alter your pH balance in your swimming pool, burn your face right off your skull aswell as make your computer screen freeze. This song is on his latest album called "Straight Outta Lynwood", and in my opinion quite a funny song. Anyway, the song is free for you to use, simply download a version below.

gmlogo"Weird Al" Yankovic - Close But No Cigar (MIDI and MP3)

As I needed a new ringtone (yet again), I thought I would sequence this song. This one is about a cat according to the video who trys to find the ultimate perfect person, and flaws such as an "ear lobe a teeny little bit too large" turn him off. This song is on his latest album called "Straight Outta Lynwood". Anyway, the song is free for you to use, simply download a version below.

"Theme #1" - Craig Mattson (MP3 Only)

This is a strange peice I put together (I'm sure anyone in the GTA world will recognise where my inspiration came from for this one). It's actually been composed for a GreenTubeLAN Fanfare logoish trailer maybe type of thing ;) Anyway, free to use/not use or whatever you want to do :)
