Kirk's posting of Revelation a few days ago has led me back to a search for RF midi files with some limited success. I've got a vested interest in these little files as most of my live work revolves around midi... but they're also very handy to have at home for practice purposes.


Bantrax / Midi 24/7
http://www.midi247.com/default.aspx
About US $10-$12 per song (depends on exchange rate)

Bandtrax is a big commercial midi site so the files are reasonably well produced and ready to work on just about any midi gear. Their production standards have gone downhill recently but these ones are older and pretty good.

Talk To Your Daughter - quite good, needs minor tweak to end of song due to fairly ordinary crash/bang/etc drum ending
Start It Up - good, more in line with the original version so a little more laid back than the version in the live set these days! Requires minor tweak to organ line at start - has a couple of notes where it follows the guitar and sounds crap. Otherwise ok.

About US $20-$25 per song (depends on exchange rate)

Mark's files are designed for his own gear, so may require some changes (e.g. insert patch names, GM/GS reset). I've only purchased Help The Poor so far which is pretty good. He mentioned to me when I purchased it that the keyboards aren't quite as strong as the original, but the drums and bass rock along pretty nicely. A bit expensive, so I'd be inclined to go elsewhere for TTYD or Revelation.

Revelation
Talk To Your Daughter
Help The Poor
Busted Up
Chevrolet


Midi Creation

No RF files (so far) but these guys have some quite good stuff available and (more importantly) do custom sequencing at a reasonable price - around US$40+ depending on song length. They're currently working on a sequence for the Neville Brothers version of Ain't No Sunshine for me and I've also got RF's version of Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood in the queue with them but this is some weeks off. I'll let you know how they turn out.

Their prices are also very good on their current song catalogue - US$6 which is very good and the standard of production generally quite high.

There's also numerous sites out there with non-RF versions of songs like Born Under A Bad Sign, Keep On Running, Badge etc. Some you might be able locate free versions for, but the quality varies. Try Bandtrax again (above) who have KOR, or Audio Production Midi - http://www.midi.com.au for Badge (also a very good site for many other songs).


I'll post back if I find anything new or interesting.


Cool
Chris
