Subject: Mudcat MIDIs
MMario and I have been working on Mudcat MIDIs since Pene Azul whipped it up for us. There are over a thousand MIDIs, and MMario is responsible for the majority of them. We can link MIDIs to one thread and one DT song each, so people should discover the MIDIs when they look for the lyrics. Look at this DT file and this thread for examples. In the process, we're also cleaning up thread names and cross-linking threads and DT songs.
What's really nice is that this is an ongoing thing that will constantly improve - and we don't need to come out with a new version of Mudcat or the DT to do updates.
If you see lyrics that need tunes, send a Noteworthy Composer, ABC, or MIDI file to MMario or me. We prefer Noteworthy files with the lyrics included, so we know which note goes to which word. Please be sure to tell us the source of the tune. The same holds true when you post lyrics - be sure to cite your source.
