Good MIDI files

Postby admin » Wed Feb 15, 2012 10:23 pm


I'm looking for "good" MIDI files (for example of Bach pieces) i.e. :

* really played by a real organist, no MIDI written with a software ;) (if generated by a software, the result is not "lively" at all)

* one channel per keyboard (1 channel for Pedale, 1 channel for GrandOrgue, 1 for Positif, etc.)

* and above all, NOT stuck to a strict BPM from beginning to end, that makes the interpretation "robotic" (because there is no slowdown, no acceleration, etc.)

Has someone such MIDI files ?
Or has someone interpretation skills that allows to record MIDI files ? (I'm not good enough to be able to record well played difficult Bach pieces ;) ).

Thanks a lot in advance!

The online IMSLP Petrucci Music Library has some original MIDI files available, but some of them are scans, some of them are played (you have to download and listen to know as they don't have a category difference for 'scanned performance' vs 'live performance').

Here a few I found during a quick search... I have not downloaded them to see ... edemann%29 ... bastian%29 ... Gaetano%29 ... Eugenio%29 ... _Edward%29 ... Emilius%29
