I just got a used Baldwin Piano with a Concert master player system, and I'm really loving it! But am having limited success in finding a lot of Midi music available. I have always loved Michael Jones(Pianoscapes, Seascapes etc) and David Lanz, Jim Brickman etc. I have ordered from Yamaha Pianosoft the only available floppy disks of Brickman and David Lanz. I have waded through the Piano disk site, the QRS site as well as Yamaha, but so many of the artists, I'm not familiar with... Any recommendations of artists or other sites where I might find music available on a floppy midi format that would be similiar to Brickman, Lanz or Michael Jones???

This is a subject that has come up in the Mechanical Musical Digest in the past. www.mmdigest.com

There is a company, www.zenphdownloads.com that has invented software that will allow them to take ANY mono or stereo solo piano recording and convert it into a midi file, to then be played on a Yamaha Disklavier Pro, which is then recorded onto a high quality CD This is truly amazing stuff. Take a listen on their website to a 1926 recording of Alfred Cortort that they have converted. The only problem is that they are at this time, only dealing with the vast archives of solo piano recordings from the major record lables for audio only CD recordings. Can you imagine if they could release these in a midi file format to play on our solenoid based players?? I have emailed them asking about just this scenario. They wrote back saying there are several issues that they would have to resolve before they could do that, such as copyrights, playback quality, price etc. I think if enough people email them with this type of request, it may help.

Even so, to be able to hear the great pianists of long ago reproduced as if they were alive today, is incredible.

Hey GPMan
Thanks for the info! It truly would be incredible to hear those performances on a live instrument. I'll email them with my interest.
