Jazz Standards Libraries - EXS or Ultrabeat?


New Member
I'm looking for libraries of jazz standards compatible with EXS or Ultrabeat (or, I suppose, GMIDI).

I can certainly see the pleasure in writing a MIDI drum sequence for Moon River, and would gladly add to a collection. But can anyone point me at an existing user-contributed tune base?



Oddly enough I was given this website by a producer friend of mine just last night: www.musicrobot.com

Its a collection of user contributed MIDI files - it may also be a search engine for them Im not sure which.

'General MIDI' is a nonsense in real terms - in practice you always need to change sounds around to make the thing really work (and some files are better than others anyway)

In terms of just backing tracks another singer friend of mine blew me away yesterday with a Judy Garland backing track from A Star is Born made by a company called Stingray I think she said.

The track sounded like a Jazz standard rather than just a karaoke backing track

Very good!
