Creating Midi files of Game Songs/Sounds

Recommended Posts

I have seen a few various sites online that have lots of different game systems where they have turned different game songs/music and sounds into Midi files.


I found only one site with about 5 Atari 2600 game sounds. Well after digging out my tape recorded I have made a Midi file of Dig Dug.


I loaded the game up in my Atari Emulator record the sounds to tape, play them back and record them in to Wav files, then I use a program to convert the Wav file into a Midi.


Here is the result. A Midi file 1.43Kb in size (Tiny!) and plays for 18 seconds. (Of course it does not sound exactly like the Atari) --



Does anyone think that this would be worth the effort to have the Atari 2600 games sounds available in a archive? Albert, Alex any comments?


The Midi files would be great for creating Screen Savers, Background Music on various gaming websites, or whatever else. :)


Anyone have any comments?

Personally, I would rather have an archive of MP3s of game songs recorded from a real Atari. I'm too busy to do it right now, but I'd be willing to help later on.
