Thread Name: Tech: midi to MP3
Subject: RE: Tech: midi to MP3
Les, I had a look at your website - looks really good. Thanks for trying so hard to make these superb tunes accessible to so many people, you've obviously put a huge amount of work into this.   

Informative thread this - I wondered why so many websites used midi - never realised it was so versatile.   

Your website's inclusion of ABC, PDF sheet music and midi seems to be spot on, anybody can use it no matter how they learn, ABC images can be converted to PNG and resized to put into people's own tunebooks, people can convert any midi tunes they want into MP3 for CD to play along with if they, like me, don't practise by a computer.   Keys, tempo etc can easily be changed via altering the ABC, or Midi or MP3 via Audacity, it doesn't matter that the midis don't sound like the Old Swan Band as the tunes are quite clear.    Making live recordings of over 100 tunes is a massive undertaking, I wouldn't have thought it was practical or necessary.      

If that was my website I'd be proud of it and wouldn't tweak it any more.   Hope the Beech continues long and strong,

Cheers,

Joy
