MIDI Files of Music Rolls at Web Site - Batch 21
By Terry Smythe

Just a brief note to advise that my Batch 21 of MIDI Type 1 files
emerging from roll scanning is now uploaded and available at  or it may be downloaded
directly from

This batch contains 157 titles, bring the total to 3,825.  By chance,
it represents the first batch that does not contain any roll scans
of my own.  It is encouraging that others are building roll scanners
and contributing their MIDI files to this ever growing library.
Special thanks to:

*  Larry Doe for contributing 100+ MIDI files from his own
scanning efforts.

*  Dave Kerr for contributing 50+ MIDI files from his own
scanning efforts.

*  Ed Gaida for contributing some MIDI files from scanning
a couple of late reproducing program piano rolls

Prior visitors will note a difference.  I have rebuilt my web site,
principally to rename my earlier uploads into a consistent convention
of tune title ahead of catalog number.  As a consequence, the previous
batch orientation had to be abandoned.  100% of all my files up to and
including Batch 20 are now available in ZIP files segregated by roll
type.  Those inclined may want to download everything and simply delete
previous batches.

The complete offerings of all previous batches in new format may be
accessed and downloaded from

Previous visitors to this "archive.htm" page may need to "refresh"
a couple of times to force loading off the web site instead of from
cache.  Otherwise, links may not work.

As before, these files may be used for personal enjoyment only to
operate pneumatic player pianos equipped with e-valves, or solenoid
operated player pianos, or on digital pianos through a MIDI-IN port
from a nearby computer or by transferring to floppy disks.  They
will, of course, "play" on most any computer capable of accepting
MIDI Type 1 files.  Enjoy!
