Ultimate MIDI Files Collection Of 2017!! (FREE DOWNLOAD)

Arguably, MIDI Files are now as important as sheet music.

That’s because with MIDI files you can control EVERYTHING from soft synths to hardware synthesizers, drum machines, samplers, and so many different types of MIDI controllers (like an Ableton Push for example).

Don’t get me wrong — sheet music is still widely used, but many modern music producers just write songs directly in the piano roll or MIDI editor from their DAW.

Not to mention, in the same fashion people would look for sheet music to study other composers, you can now look for MIDI files and learn from your favorite music producers!

MIDI files can range from simple melodies, chords progressions, MIDI drum grooves, even to fully completed songs!

You can study them by getting MIDI files from songs that you really like, putting them inside your DAW, and study how the artist arranged the chords, melody, drum grooves, and bass line — assuming it’s all included in the MIDI file.

For that reason, MIDI files are really valuable as an educational resource.

But unfortunately, not every song out there is available as a MIDI file.

So, to help you find all the best MIDI files online, we’ve gathered a list of over 133 MIDI files!

And the best part is, they’re ALL free. So you can download them without worrying about the cost, and start learning instantly.

Also — please keep in mind that the Cymatics free MIDI files are the only ones that are guaranteed to be royalty free!
