Two of my great loves are computers and music. I think it is well worth it to have a
really good sound card in my computer. The links below point to the pages where I
have MIDI sequences that I have done for some songs. You will notice that most of
them are either hymns or Christmas songs, my two favorite kinds of music. There are
lots of MIDI sequences available on the internet, and that includes just about any kind
of music you like. I have found many really good sequences of rock and classical songs,
for example. But I have been somewhat disappointed in most of the sequences of
church-type songs I have found. That is why I have concentrated on those types of
I hope to shortly have available on this web site MP3 recordings of all of the MIDI sequences I have done. I may also possibly provide lyrics. Stay tuned.
By the way, the sound card I now have in my old XP system is a SoundBlaster Audigy 2 ZS, and I use an 8MB soundfont that replaces the built-in General MIDI sounds, plus some others for individual instruments. On my newer Win 10 system I have a SoundBlaster Titanium X-Fi board, which supports a soundfont-capable MIDI synthesizer ... something very difficult to find anymore. Even with this card (which was much more expensive than Creative's very affordable Audigy series), getting the synthesizer to perform correctly took a lot of trial-and-error after I installed it. These files will sound much better if you use a good sound card with soundfonts. It is possible that some sounds will not be replicated very well on lesser systems, so again, if you really enjoy music, get yourself a good sound card if you do not have one! Most on-board sound systems have truly awful MIDI music reproduction.
