Midi and MusicXML are music files consisting of notes. Therefore these files are much smaller than a corresponding audio-file. The real sound is made by the synthesizer in the computer. The synthesizer uses a soundfont to make the real sound.


MidiAndMusicXmlPlayer

 

 


MidiAndMusicXmlPlayer is a program to play Midi- and MusicXML-files easily. There is no installation - just run MidiAndMusicXmlPlayer.exe or MidiAndMusicXmlPlayer.app. Just drop the Midi-file or MusicXML-file in the window or use the open-menu. Big intuitive buttons for starting and stopping playing You may select which instruments/voices that you want to hear by setting checkmarks. You may even transpose the song and change the tempo of the song. To repeat you set a mark (Button with arrow down) and then then button changes to show a circle. Press this to circle (repeat). The latest version V1.42 has support for microtones - but limited to single voices (no chords, not sopran and alto in same part etc.).

Makam

Turkish Makam Music Symbolic Data Collection: 2200 tunes are in this collection of MusicXML-files. The tunes are described by: "Karaosmanoğlu, M. K. (2012). A Turkish makam music symbolic database for music information retrieval: SymbTr. Proc. Int. Society for Music Information Retrieval (ISMIR)". You may also find information in the papers of Sertan Şentürk.

The 2200 tunes are converted from the .mu2-format preserving the note pitch and can be played by MidiAndMusicXmlPlayer. The files will however not look right in notation programs - but an option to the converter program can make the note sheet look right in Musescore. Note me if interested, then I can put the converter-program on the home page. (The notation program Mus2 can display and play the .mu2 file) A few tunes are converted with errors - I added these anyway hoping that this will help correcting the original file. A message in the end of the XML-file describes the problem. You can get the tune to sound a lot better by installing another soundfont. There are several free soundfonts for the instruments Ud and Kanun.

Download the whole suite here as one zip-file:

Turkish Makam Files with microtones (SymbTr-MakamFilesWithMicrotonesMusicXml.zip: 2200 MusicXML files)

Or use the converter program to generate the MusicXML-file (Observe the options - write the program name with no argument to see the options):
