    Midi q:


    I'm a musician and I'm (also) using MIDI for music production. Problem is that in Win 10 not all MIDI files are playing back properly. F.x. I have some drum files that only play back piano notes where it was supposed to play back a whole drum kit. I read that MS somehow changed the MIDI protocol (or whatever it's called) starting from Win 8. Has anyone, anywhere got a fix? Regards...

    :)

  2. Samsung Saga alert tone question

    I just switched from the Motorola Q to the Samsung Saga. I wanted to keep two of the midi alert tones from my Q and bring them over to my new Saga.


    I copied the midis over to the Windows directory but they still are not seen in the alert tone menu. I even tried converting them to wav files and still they were not found. How can I get the midis to show in the alert tone choice menu?



    The saga does have some midis as some default tones so it's not the fact that they're midis.

  3. Finding Midi files and downloading them for Alarm Clock

    Have you tried googling for .midi files? I don't use them anymore, but a couple of years ago I spent quite a bit of time downloading midi files from the web.

    here are some
    google results
    to get you started.

    I'll give it a try, thank you. Forgot to mention that the 'problem files' will play back correctly when imported into Cubase, my music project program, but it's a bit of a time consuming process...

    According to VideoLAN - VLC - Features it should play MIDI files.

    I haven't had any issue with the MIDI .mid files I have but they are not converted from any other format, as far as I know.

  10. MIDI files contain note data, but no audio data. In order to play a MIDI file, the note data must be fed into a rendering engine. Windows used to include a (very crude) engine that handles that (but some, above, are saying it's not there anymore).

    No matter. That engine was pure crap. You say you're a musician? Then get proper rendering software. Get a DAW and some software instruments to plug into it. You can get pianos, drums, strings, and many more instruments.

    But this is a Windows forum, not a music forum. You'll find more and better information elsewhere. I'm a pianist, so I'm on at PianoWorld.com ... and there are many more fora for other musical specialties.
