Piano Wizard uses MIDI music files to teach

Piano Wizard Resources

 


Piano Commando and Piano Wizard are like musical browsers, tapping into an ocean of content and 20 years of MIDI development. Below are several different types of resources for you, from links to MIDI file resources, to links to complementary MIDI programs or equipment, to links on music and musical education in general. Please forward us your favorite resources and help us all win.

This page was added quickly, and will grow and evolve as we weed out old sites, and add new ones. Do your own searches for any song you like, just go to Yahoo or Google and type in the song you want and the word "MIDI" and see what you can find. As far as quality, it is catch as catch can, but there is a lot of great music out there. Just be sure to copy the files to your My Songs folder in the game (You should have a link to that folder on your desktop, just copy and paste into that shortcut.)

WHAT THE HECK IS "MIDI" ANYWAY?

Making Music With MIDI

Tutorial on MIDI and Music Synthesis

Introductory Material on MIDI

  • Introduction into MIDI (1989) - A very good article for newcomers to MIDI, explaining how it came about, what MIDI messages are, and how MIDI devices can be connected, along with some additional references.
  • Exploring MIDI - A good source for learning the basics of MIDI as well as some of the more technical aspects.
  • USENET MIDI Primer (28K, 1989) - This gets into the more technical workings of MIDI, including electrical specifications data message structure.
  • Tutorial on MIDI and Music Synthesis (108K) - This tutorial covers the basics of MIDI systems and MIDI messages, but it also gets into synthesizer technology and terminology, focusing on wavetable and sample based synths (accompanied by pictures and diagrams). There is also some discussion of using PCs with MIDI and windows configuration.
  • MIDI Technical Fanatic's Brainwashing Center - Tutorials covering a variety of topics.
  • History of MIDI
