Classical midi and resampled links

Midi files are somewhere halfway between mp3's and music sheets. As a mechanical rendition of the music they are useful for learning to play a piece of music or just for recognizing it. The sound quality of midi files depends very much on the sampled instruments that are used. Some sound mechanical. Others are hard to distinguish from real recordings. It depends on their creator and what his or her goal is for the file. See also under soundfile links.
Another use of midi files is for seeing the score of the music. Professional musicians will have software for this. Amateurs will have to help themselves with a 30-day try-out copy of Sibelius or Noteworthy. There is also a free 16-bit version of Noteworthy, but you can't print from that.
