View Full Version : midi music file from amiga

July 2nd, 2006, 02:58 PM
I have owned several Amigas in the past, although I have none now (unfortunately!).

I do remember there was a tune I used to play on my Amiga 1000 or 500 that I would like to get hold of as a sound file if possible. I think it was a (midi?) demo file that came with the machine, but I am not too sure.

The song is actually a traditional hymn called "jesu joy of mans desiring", and there are hundreds of versions of this song around, but the Amiga version is the best I have ever heard.

Does anyone have this in an MP3 or OGG format? Or could make one for me? Or knows where one is available for download?

If it is midi, the midi file would be nice but not the complete answer as it is not only the arrangement but the actual sounds generated by the Amiga hardware that would make a lot of difference to the end result. But if it was all I could get it would be of some help.

There may be copyright issues associated although after all this time it would seem to be a non issue perhaps?

Anyone can help would be much appreciated.
