Mega-man midis

     Back in my High School and college days, I believed that the Mega Man series
for the Nintendo Entertainment System were the best games ever.  Besides having
excellent playability, the games had a feature that made them unique-- 
excellent music.

     Before the days of the *.nsf file format, which allows almost any Nintendo
or Famicom game's music to play on utilities such as WinAmp, the only tools 
available were Midis and *.wav files.  Since *.wav files can grow to be gigantic 
in size, and with web server space being so limited at the time, I "composed" 
these MIDIS from the original music, tweaking them to be as good as the originals.

     This page is obviously very poorly done, but I am leaving it in this format 
to be nostalgic.   The Animated Gifs were created with MegaMan screenshots, and a
freeware program that I used back in college.  Anyway, I hope you enjoy listening 
to these if you have the time.

P.S.  Note that these were created using an 16-bit sound card.  They still sound
ok with an 8-bit sound card, but they may sound funny on anything more advanced.
Of special note are the scores with percussion instruments; The Woodman midi
may not sound accurate on a 32-bit MIDI platform.  Other files may have this
problem too.  I thought I should let you know that I didn't intentionally make
some of these sound terrible (if they do; I don't know).  It could be that
technology advancements may have changed the sound of these simple melodies.

Anyway, on with the show...
Mega man is cool.
