|UFO: Enemy Unknown: Game rip|
I am a bit disappointed from the midi, but still glad I got it. Many sounds are too much different from the original game one. Examples:
Tactical Section - volume of the bruum, bruuum is way too much over the original, also the instruments sound weird.
Compared to the original - it tries to sound like playing real instruments instead of pure synthetics in which it sounded much better.
The intercept, for example has problem with timing when playing in winamp. When playing from beginning, there is a lower note and then the classic intercept tune. The first sound is not played when you rewind the track. Also, the original synthetic sounded a bit more impactful.
How to restore music with original synthetizers of those days?
Not sure, but I feel that there were few more notes in the Story tune in the beginning. Alse my version seemed to alternate after a couple of minutes. (or it was only in the geoscape only?)
But otherwise I am happy I found it on the net.

I DON'T WANT TO READ THIS, I WANNA DOWNLOAD TUNES!
Welcome to World of game Mids, collection of game music in MIDI format. Midi format was very popular in PC games especially within years 1991-1996, so this site would enjoy every fan of PC game music (or PC game mids) from these years. And because quality of midi tunes raises with quality of soundcard, you can listen to these tunes now mostly in much better quality as you possibly listened to when the games were released! And yes, this page is also great resource if you are looking for cool mobile phone ringtunes based on music from games (of course, your cellphone must support polyphonic Midi files to play :) ). Near PC game music you can find here tons of another game music for other computers and consoles, either arranged or remixes - because MIDI is very popular format for doing arrangements or remixes of game tunes for all platforms. If you want some suggestions and want to know something more about game mids, look at World of Game Mids FAQ.
This MIDI collection has been created on the principle of another popular site World of Game MODs, where is BIG collection of tracked modules mostly from Amiga and PC. It is also well connected with Game Music Base, where you will find much more information about game music you won't find here.
- Only game tunes are included (no demo tunes, no competition tunes, ONLY tunes released in the games)
- Only tunes in MID format are available. Other Midi formats like HMP, XMI etc. were converted to MID mostly using WinAmp (see here how), to be playable in all Midi players. Sometimes is in the archive the same song in more MIDI versions (e.g. for FM, GM, XG, AWE etc..). If yes, these formats should be mentioned in parenthesis in "version" row. (see FAQ for details about these MIDI formats)
- One zip file corresponds to one game, the zip filename is complete name of the game and inside archive are all songs from the game available at the time.
- Every archive has info.txt file provided with some information about the game and tunes, and also if the archive is complete or not.
