"MIDI's Suck"— Lisa Berry
Well maybe the ones she's heard, to be fair I'll give her that, and I'm certain that she is confusing 1. her concept for 2. the fact. 1. - the tinny sound produced by sending an SMF to be interpreted by her laptop PC sound card and ribbon speakers - for 2. the information exchange protocol which is extremely good for sequencing and manipulating an enormous range of instruments simultaneously that MIDI essentially is. "It's like having a full orchestra packed into your room, and you are the conductor." —bestmp3links.com/midi She hears lifeless guitars in a paper-thin band sequenced by amateurs. I envision the same file reproduced by a Roland SD-20 and glorious rows of well-trained professional instrumentalists who always play exactly what I've written, so I'm solely to blame if they blow wet mangey goats. Some people just have no imagination (yet can be enlightened where to look.)
There is a place for midi files in my heart.
When properly done, they are absolutely great for machine readable sheet music which can be studied, edited, printed, and fed into a wide variety of player applications, including forming an orchestron of daisy-chained instruments. I use a piece of crap GUI editor which crashes constantly, (like my early programming, every fifth action is CTRL-S to save, and it crashes after each save, and it saves non-transferable files in a proprietary format.) but I paid for a registered copy of Quickstart Studio Composer (the rebate never arrived!) and it allows Winamp to open a karaoke lyric playback window as well as realtime recording to midi files (an ungodly mess of notation without clicktrak) - so, there's that. And, having warned against Quickstart Studio Composer [bitter "pleh!"]; I recommend müsescore I highly recommend for those wishing to print, play, modify, share, sequence and explore my midi files. It is a free download under GNU General Public License v2 and which includes the essential key which Quickstart was sorely missing: tutorials and handbook both are brilliantly and clearly written with easy to navigate help for quick answers.
The MIDIs (Multiple Instrument Digital InterfaceWIKIPEDIA,) or actually the SMFs (Standard MIDI Files) featured on this website have been modified from others I've found on the net, or sequenced myself to prevent copyright infringement and constitute arrangements by myself - wiz. You can find them all gathered here:

TheWanderer.mid My karaoke bash of Scott Joplin's 1909 piano roll of "Solace" with the Swingle Singers lyric interpretation of Tony Vincent Isaacs arranged by Ward Swingle which intrigued me when I first heard it on Harry Anderson's "Hello Sucker" Showtime comedy special, so I spent a weekend (yes, the syncopation is that tough) merging the old and new in a file I could share. And here are my version of the lyrics
