Keybords and Organs Midi Players

Musical keyboards with disc drives can usually play midi files by creating a copy of the file on a floppy disc or CD and inserting it into the keyboard's disc drive. Our midi files are 'Type 1' (meaning the voices are recorded on separate channels). Some pipe organ midi players can only play 'Type 0' midi files and will not be able to read our files (Type 0 midi files are recorded with all the musical voices on a single channel).
