EASY LISTENING MUSIC FILES
The Wave Table Synthesis Sound
Card was especially designed for Midi music. Sound is an analog property;
it can take on any value over a continuous range. Computers are digital;
they like to work with discrete values. Sound cards use a device known
as an Analog to Digital Converter to convert voltages corresponding to
analog sound waves into digital or numeric values that can be stored in
memory. Similarly, a Digital to Analog Converter converts numeric values
back to an analog voltage which can in turn drive a loudspeaker, producing
sound. WaveTable Synthesis combines the flexibility of Digital to Analog
conversion with the multiple channel capability of FMSynthesis. With this
scheme digitized voices can be downloaded into dedicated memory, and then
played, combined, and modified with little CPU overhead. All State of the
Art sound cards support WaveTable Synthesis. You need to be sure to set
your Multimedia Properties correctly in the Midi dialogue box in your computer.
Below are some Easy Listening
songs I have written. None of this music is meant for distribution, but
is for personal use only. The tunes on this page were designed for the
Creative 24-bit Sound Blaster Audigy2 Sound Card and sounds best with this
card. On many newer computers, sound cards are included on the mother board
itself and may not include the WaveTable Synthesis, so your computer may
produce the sounds of these tunes very poorly, which can be extremely unsatisfactory.
Actually, the Creative Sound Blaster Live 5.1 Sound Card produces a richer
sound of the different instruments and a deeper and mellower bass sound,
along with the terrific sounds of other frequencies of a Midi. The Creative
Sound Blaster 24-bit Audigy 2 Card also does a terrific job with Midi music.
Another advantage, you can download a Midi in a few seconds, while using
only a small amount of memory. If you have a music program, the sound is
better exported as a Wav file.
Some of the songs by others below
are only written by memory from the '40s, 50, and 70s. You may find
that some of the music is not written just as it ought to be, by certain
phrases having more or less notes that there should be. I am not a professional
song writter nor neighter do I know that much about music. I do it
onlyas a hobby and I just like the sound of some of these songs which still
linger in my memory.
