I was just looking for a MIDI of "Petite Fleur" to download, and once again Google said I could find one on a site called electrofresh.com

So I went to the page Google had linked and saw that it claims to have a MIDI of 'Petite Fleur.'   But when I click on petitefleur.mid what do I get? A useless HTML file.

Does anybody know how to get a real MIDI off this site? Is there some new technique I have yet to learn?

Just click the button and it downloads for you.

I got it to download, leeneia, it's a nice midi file, too. I clicked on both the name and the little "V" icon, and got the midi file both times. Sometimes a browser, for one reason or another, can't open or download from a page--try opening the page in a different browser and see if that helps.

leeneia - if you tried to right-click and Save As... you'll get the html file. As Stim says, just do a normal left-click on the download link symbol.

Thanks, Jack. And thanks, Mike. This is the first site where I've used the right click to download.

sitivation resolved!

Last night I downloaded the electrofresh MIDI and found it unusable. It is what I call a 'touchy-feely MIDI,' one where every tiny change of duration is noted and produces a wealth of crazy note lengths. Sometimes I can fix those, but not this time.

Jack's MIDI had the disadvantage of being hard to read (for me, because I have pretty bad eyes), so I opened it and NWC and copied it. I tried to kid myself that I would play it in the given key of B-flat, but around midnight a voice said, "Just change it to C and play it more-or-less in Am," so that's what I did.

When I'm transcribing music, the hardest thing to do is to notate the timing. I'm so grateful I had that music from Jack's Swiss site to guide me. The timing on that thing! Whole notes tied to a quarter note, quarter-note triplets! (I thought only the Jesuits did that.)
It's a sophisticated piece.

Thanks, all.

leeneia - if you log in and pm me an email address I'll send you a copy of the lead sheet (melody + chords).
