Fremidi.org is a very good site, with a lot of variety in MIDI's, from seasonal stuff to anthems and more-plus some VG works too.

Bumpity bump. icon_razz.gif

Here's a Japanese site I've got on-record, and they've got some damn nice stuff. I'd provide a proper name for the site, but read the first sentence again and you'll realize why I can't. icon_razz.gif

http://hannya.nce.buttobi.net/
There's around 150 midis on the site. Just hit MIDI on the left, and you'll be taken to various RPG text boxes with Japanese stuff. Just go down an look for Nm01~, hit that and you'll have a complete listing of the work here. Also, you'll need to open the midi and save it again with Anvil, or export to Type 0 or something like that if you want to use them in ZC, since they won't work as-is. But believe me, it's well worth it; these midis are indeed top quality stuff.

Added. Also, you can also do MP3 and Tracker music as well.

I'm trying to learn how to use .NSF music - can anyone help?

I told you. Go to Quest->Dmap and on the music tab theres the enhanced option load the nsf file and select the track you want.

Yeah, I know, but I'm still having problems icon_confused.gif
I loaded the NSF file there, and selected the right track,
but I can't get it to play when I load up my quest.
Do I have to change the MIDI setting right above the slot
where you load the NSF? Do I have to change the music under
Screen Data? How do I know if my NSF file is ZC compatible?

EDIT: Problem solved thanks to SpacemanDan icon_smile.gif
I needed to put the file in the same folder as the ZC application

The nsf file needs to be in the same folder as the quest. This goes for all enhanced music. If that's not the problem then I don't know what is.

3 more links to enhanced music.

 

1. Akumu's NSF Archive - .NSF

 This site hosts a near complete archive of NES music. It includes even music from certain ROM hacks.

2. SNESmusic.org - RSN/SPC

 Another near complete music archive. This time is SNES one. Upon downloading you get a file with .RSN extension. It`s an archive that contains entire game`s soundtrack. Unpack it with an archiver like WinRAR to get .SPC`s.

3.http://www.smwcentra...list&type=music - .SPC

 This is a custom Super Mario World - styled music hosted by SMW hacking fans. Each song is downloaded individually. Inside (almost) each download are two files: one .TXT and one .SPC. Text file is a SMW hacking -related "trash" and an .SPC file is your point of interest.

My good friend and Doom community colleage James Paddock is a talented Midi Musician who is able to do a variety of musical genres and the like and is usually open to requests when he's not busy.

 

Here's his blog where he keeps all of his musical midi works available for downloading.

http://jamespaddockmusic.com/

(just look under the media section of his blog)

 

and then there's the Doom Musicians Guild.

http://jimmy.the-pow...use.net/forums/

 

A decent place to put out a midi request when you need one. James and a few of his fellow musicians do take requests from there, even if they are kinda slow in getting it done but rest assured that you can count on it getting done. And for those experience musicians looking for a musical challenge James and Co. are always open to having more musicians on board provided that you write up a short little resume. This place is also a good forum in general.

I thought i'd put some links up to some useful sites with music and applications to use for music files and modification.

 

Tools / Applications

1 - Solmire - Midi to Mp3 converter (FREE Online App)

Upload and convert midi files to mp3. Browse for your midi file, set parameters like Soundfont to use, effect and some other settings.

 

2 - Direct Midi to Mp3 Converter (Free to try/use for 30 days)

Soundfont dependant. Add in midi files, set your soundfont settings. Convert to ogg/mp3/wav/wma. You can take one midi file and have it sound different per soundfont then convert it and have that converted midi file sound the same everywhere as a wav file, mp3, ogg. Lots of different results if utilized correctly. (I use it myself!) This site also has various other Midi tools available.

 

3 - Audacity (Free Audio Editing Software - Probably pretty popular)

"Audacity® is free, open source, cross-platform software for recording and editing sounds."

 

4 - Sfxr (DrPetters's 8-Bit sfx sound generator/editor)

Start with a basic sound effect like coin grab, jump sound, explosion and change it's parameters to get the sound you need. I know of several guys/gals who have used this for there games.

 

5 - Chip Amp (Chiptune Plugin collection for winamp)

This installation will install many if not all available playback plugins for Winamp to hear nearly all game music files in their original sound set. Includes playback for Nsf, Spc, Gym, Sid, Hes (TurboGfx), GG, GB, Msx, MS, PS1, PS2 N64...

 

6 - Famitracker (NSF format style music composer/tracker software) For those who want to make their own!

There are lots of tunes to download at the place too. Bring out your Retro composition music talent.

 

7 - Milkytracker (Another music tracker/composer popular with compposers)

This tracker is kinda popular among the comps out there. Compose and save into s3m, xm, mod ect.

 

8 - Muscore (Composition and notation software) Several nice to follow Video Tutorials on the main page.

This is a very nice FREE music composer software that allows composition of sheet music similar to Anvil Studio

You can save your files into .mid, .ogg, .wav, .flac, .pdf, .xml, . (text files similar to midi file information)

You can use any sound font you like. Plenty of options to try out.

 

9 - Mario Paint composer (Last Nobull version) / Now Retroband (Must signup to use but free with limits and a nagging popup every 3 minutes while your using it It must have been taken over by someone ass. heh.) Mario Paint composer link at softonic. Click the Green FREE download / Safe Download button on the first page and the second page. There shouldn't be any misleading links. Now Retroband link will take you to the new site. You can compose and save to midi files with this app. MPC saves it's files into wierd encrypted text files presumebly like midi files are stored but may not be able to save a direct format.

 

10 - Timidity ++ (Alternative to Microsofts Midi GS Wavetable)

This is a driver set with included player and settings to allow you to hear midi files based on the sound font you have selected in it's settings. There are plenty of choices here and I use it regularly. Be sure to download the appropriate language version. This is the only page you'll find a windows Installer on. Every other page seems to have just the sourse files. This Exe makes the installation and setup MUCH easier.

 

Music Files (Midi / Mod / Mp3...)

1 - Aganazzar (Game Midi Archive)

555 Midi files from games. Some of these are duplicates of what's among other sites.

 

2 - HVSC - High Voltage SiD collection (Lots of music files in the .sid / Commodore64/128 format)

This archive has music files unsuatable for playback within ZClassics BUT, they can be played back in winamp and saved/recorded then converted to proper format. Latest update was not long ago, Dec 22 2013. The C64 had some really nice retrobit compositions. I'm a fan of old school Sound!

 

3 - Zophar's Game Music Files (NSF, SPC, GYM...) This could be a resource many folks know about already.

Tons of original game music right from the games themselves. Play them back with winamp (or your favorite player) or save them out to playable format by ZClassics. There are other tools at this site as well to the right of the page.

 

4 - Chiptune UP! (Quite a few nsf, mod, midi, s3m, mp3 files)

It's basically a fileserver containing game music archives for composers to give and take.

 

5 - TSSF's Remixes page (Originals and Remixes for various video games using instruments from what the real machines used)

He made some original nsf's and spc files for a few fan games like Mega Man and final Fantasy. you may find something nice here but it would be even nicer to get proper permission where suitable. He also composed a handful of remixed tunes for the Chrono Trigger Ressurection 3D fan game remake that Suqare-enix told them to stop production of! (Lame SQ!)

 

6 - Arts and Music Sound Files (Lots of links to various original MIDI files and lots of other nice stuff)

Open Directory of music in several formats including of course, Midi files. Please take heed any permissions if going here and using any of these. I'm sure the composer would appreciate it. :) I'm a fan of giving creds to originality.

 

7 - Woolyss - Chipmusic and Things! (Plenty of retro sound things going on here)

Get soundfonts, sample compositions and many other retro related music things. I love this site. Even go to the home page and play donkey Kong! My favorite sound font thus far is the "GXSCC gm 033" retro nes/gb style retro font. Don't forget to try the "Ultimate Genesis soundfont" or "Setzer's SPC Soundfont".

 

8 - Oc rEmIx doT OrG! (One of my favorite sites for nostalgic music!)

Lots of high quality remixes (and original) of many game tunes mostly in Mp3 format unless it's the original file being described.

 

 

OK. Maybe I went a little overboard. There should be plenty of clicking and searching around these sites for something useful.

If this topic is still being used by anyone (which I assume, as it's pinned) I direct you to Zophar's Domain, for NSF (etc.) music: http://www.zophar.net/music.html

It has (allegedly) every NSF from NES games, along with over 1000 GBS's (the game boy equivalent) and much more. The website does have ROMs on it as well, but from what I understand, they're all public domain, so no copyright is violated. If it does turn out I've made a mistake and violated PureZC rules, I'm sorry, and I'll remove the link as soon as I'm aware.
