 Frequently Asked Questions

How do I play a MIDI file?

You have several ways to play the MIDI files depending upon your computer, software, and access to a Clavinova. From a computer equipped with multimedia (software, sound card, and speakers) you can choose to download the MIDI file to your computer. 

Can I change the tempo of the accompaniments?

Please view the three videos on digital accompaniments: their production, transformations, and uses. 

How can I get a more realistic tone out of the accompaniments?

The quality of your sound system and computer software determines the realism of the accompaniments. The best sound may be obtained by playing the files in MuseScore2, Finale, or Sibelius. Upgrades to your computer sound system, sound card, or software; or playing the MIDI files on a Clavinova or similar instrument will greatly improve the sound. Please understand that the General MIDI instruments are only a meager facsimile of genuine orchestral instruments, therefore these files will never sound as good as an orchestral recording or performance.
