Available MIDI Sound Files of Sheet Music Publications

A number of MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) sound files have been generated by Optical Music Recognition software from the digitized images of sheet music. For example, all of the titles of African American music are available in MIDI form. Please note that every effort was made to be faithful to the original score as printed -- including printing errors. This means that mistakes in the score can also be heard in the MIDI files.

Help with Sound and Video files

The multimedia (RealAudio and RealVideo) files are experimentally posted on a RealMedia server thanks to the hospitality of UCB's Berkeley Multimedia Research Center. To view and/or listen to these files, you will need the RealPlayer, available here. You will also need speakers.

In order to listen to the MIDI files, you will need speakers and a MIDI player (availabe on most PC's with Windows 3.x or higher). If you need a MIDI player, links to downloadable software/browser plug-ins for a variety of systems can be found here.

If you have software on your work station that allows you to view separate tracks of a MIDI file, you may wish to link that application to your Web browser.

The RealMedia files and the MIDI files are available both from the pages of this Web site and from searches in Search Two for particular printed sheet music. Just look for the sound or video links.
