MIDI Song Starters FREE Edition
MIDI Construction Kits
UPDATED to v1.2! What's new? 1 more midi kit (28 more MIDI files). New kit contains more elements inside like rhythmic chords, chord fills plus there are bonus MIDI files so the number of possible combinations is much higher (you can even make several tracks just from 1 pack). There are also more variations.
Tempo information is removed from MIDI files which means same pack with 80 bpm in the name can be used from ambient to DnB tracks and anything in between, it will always stay same number of bars (project tempo will determine how fast is played). That makes them widely usable.
You can pretty much ignore BPM info from pack name. (Note: this applies to most DAWs, for others like MPC software read documentation for workaround) Please note that this are bonus kits, they are not included in the full pack.
For how versatile this free pack is you can check the demo track (for free pack) where only 1 construction kit is used for all 3 short compositions (without changing MIDI arrangement - just different instruments and drums).
Theme of this pack is emotive and nostalgic compositions. Contains 1 MIDI Construction Kit to jumpstart production projects. Consists of 6 MIDI files: -Single track midis (8 bars length): bass (2 variations); melody (2 variations) which are actually chord arpeggios (polyphonic); and Main chord Progression. -multitrack midi file, this file contains all other (for compatibility reasons).
Pack is BPM and key-labeled (120 bpm Fm). You have the ultimate freedom to choose your own sounds, change the key, velocity, length, rearrange the musical phrase exactly as you want it, add your own unique sound and build up your new track. You have as much flexibility as possible. Personalize these phrases and make them unique to your own style.
There is also information provided about chord progression, as kind of help if you want to record additional instruments (in form: I-VI-IV-V-III-VI-II-V for example)
Because MIDI is very versatile you can chop/rearrange for more variety or even change key just by transposing all notes and they will all stay in key (new one, depends of amount of transposing: F minor to G minor require transposition of +2 semitones for example)
There is also info about BPM in which they are recorded and while I can not guarantee they will work fine in other tempos but in daws tested they always stayed 8 bars if I made project tempo change before importing MIDI.
It's very annoying when you load MIDI in middle of working on a project and it change whole project to different bpm, tempo information is not written into this midi files so they behave like they are immune to tempo change.
Tested DAWS: Reaper, Sonar, Energy XT2, MPC Essentials. Midi Song Starters is a very useful tool for any producer who wants to add some emotions to their tracks, can be used for any kind of musical projects: Cinematic, Downtempo, Ambient, Chill Out, Hip Hop, Dubstep, R, Electronica and whatever style you are into.
License (please read License Agreement pdf document for details): royalty free Note: This pack contains MIDI files only. It is not GM compatible, it is intended for use in Digital Audio Workstations (Ableton, Reaper, FL Studio etc). Audio previews contain other elements such as drums/percussion which are not part of this pack. Also demo is just quick composition without any fx processing (not even eq) or balancing so it will probably sound very raw.
