Logic Pro 9 MIDI download problem


I want to embed the MIDI of 'My Romance' ( scroll down):


... in a song for a student to develop his jazz standards chops.

Yet the file downloads as a .mov, and Logic will only open it as a QT movie ( which presumably tells QT instruments to play).

IS there any way to extract the MIDI?

Ctrl-click (Right Click) on the link and do 'Save linked file as...'

Save it, then you can import it.

However, I went to do this and it links to the 'Moon River.mid' file...

Try it out...

Sorry, I tried to download 'My Foolish Heart'. That is the one that is linked incorrectly.

Just follow the same directions as above with one of the MIDI files for 'My Romance'

Did that help?

Strange Peter, I was able to D/L a Midi file and import it into Logic without any trouble. It was this one:

Midi file (GM) - of the video above, General Midi version
and is called MyRomanceGM.mid.

Let me know, if it doesn't work I'll find a way to get it to you.

kind regards

Just so you know that you aren't going crazy, if I single click the link it most certainly fires up QT in Safari.

The ctrl-click will get you the option to download the file.

Or, single click so it opens in QT, then click on the download triangle at RH of QT player and choose "Save as Source". This way you can audition it in QT before downloading the actual file.
I have to send midi files some times... here's my method:

1) Right click on the midi file and make archive (or compress on 10.5).

2) Find the zip file, and email to them.

3) Tell them to drag the file to their desktop (on their computer), or right click and select save attachment, and save to a place they will find it.

4) Double click, and you are good to go, drop it onto Logic.

I find mail apps and web servers can make a file a bit of a mess. a Zip file seems to be the best way to get a file to someone via email so as to not loose the file type, etc.

Hope that helps,

ask him - he seems to be right there with email replies - I emailed about my download problem and got an immediate reply.

I might try playing the MIDIFile with my trio of Ivory, SD2 and Kontakt Acoustic Bass. I reckon it'll sound OK but haven;t had time to set it up.

If you find out please post here
