At a previous Hand Made Music night, I demonstrated some work I've done with crafting realistic synthetic music using midi and high quality soundfonts.

Another example of this hobby of mine has been posted on our blog.

Thanks!

Here are a couple more examples of my emulations:
http://mntechnoguy.home.comcast.net/Blaze-Away.mp3
http://mntechnoguy.home.comcast.net/Band_Organ_1.mp3

Again, I'm not doing the composing and sequencing of these, just optimizing playback with my choice of soundfonts, player, and DSP effects. In the Stars and Stripes rendition, I wanted booming bass drum beats, clear piccolo, slight reverb, and noticeable separation of instrument sounds.

The main key to a realistic emulation by midi, of course, is the level of professionalism that goes into creating the midi file. GaryW0001 has created some of the best I've heard, specializing in big band and movie/tv tunes. His current official website only has a search function to find his midis, but you can find a lot of his work scattered about the Internet.

A gentleman who has sequenced some great midi emulations of band organ and carousel music is Eugene Hayek from New Jersey. Eugene is an accomplished theatre organ player, master midi craftsman, and inventor in the virtual theatre pipe organ (VTPO) community.

I've got the idea to build a real electro-mechanical music machine (midi-based) with multiple instruments, probably a bandwagon. If anyone has some parts, ideas, or instruments to spare for such a thing, please contact me.
