Hi Charles, I thought that as long as you have a MIDI player that
is compatible with MAC that it should play any midi file. Since I
use an IBM compatible computer (running Windows 3.1) I am not of very
Jody Kravitz uses a MAC (and I think Robbie does too) and I feel
certain he would be a much better person to ask.
I'll forward your letter to him.

[ Charles Kossman is one of our long-time subscribers; he lives in

[ that he is experimenting with MIDI files now.
[ To my knowledge the web site provides only the MIDI data file, which
[ is transmitted to the MIDI player program (or 'sequencer' program)
[ in your computer. I don't know about programs which play the music
[ while you're connected. I just download (copy) the data file from
[ the web site into a new file on my computer, and I play the music
[ after I disconnect the computer from the Internet Service Provider
[ (ISP). I like the Master Tracks sequencer on the Macintosh, and
[ IBM-PCs can use Cakewalk or Master Tracks and several other editor/
[ sequencer programs.
[ There are many, many web sites which offer MIDI files. MMD has a
[ few MIDI files at:
[ A fine site for Bluegrass and John Philip Sousa marches is

[ Ragtime music is featured at John Roache's web site:
