MIDI Micro Essentials Volume 1

FREE

The product comprises of 319 individual MIDI files (or 47 complete 'construction kits'), that are neatly organised into categorized sub folders for easy access and quick use in the sequencer of your choice. You simply drag and drop the MIDI files into your sequencer and let your creative juices flow! This product is launched in association with our remix competition, where you can win a combination of prizes and other exclusive bonuses – check it out below!

We've done all the hard work finding fresh chord progressions, top line melodies, deep basses, etc. You can easily use our files completely unchanged or tweak them to your own liking and style. We have also included all the MIDI files from our previously released freeware MIDI packs.

These MIDI patterns will not only give you a strong starting point to make your own productions, but also provide you with a comprehensive arsenal of spine-tingling plucks, plucks, leads and luscious chords to build on top of. The main focus was to produce a MIDI pack that would drive inspiration and not lock you into one genre, we wanted to allow enough creative flexibility to mould the construction kits to the genre of your choice, without staying strict to one genre. We have included a combination of uplifting and progressive styles in this pack, though all construction kits work well between 125-140 Beats per minute, so other slower genres are applicable also.

MIDI Library Properties

  • 47 high quality construction kits that can be used to create tracks in almost any genre
  • All construction kits are 100% royalty free
  • Chord progressions were created with different style influences (Trance, House, Film, Classical, Jazz, etc...) which makes this pack very original in its own unique way
  • There is a very strong focus on memorable melodies and chord progressions
  • A wide variety of miscellaneous MIDI files (out with the construction kits) are provided
  • In short, the way a MIDI Pack should be!

Remix Competition

Alongside the launch of this free product, we are running an associated remix competition. You can pick any single construction kit or use a combination of MIDI files and create your own interruption (remix) in whatever genre you like (all genres are welcome – though some kits definitely lend themselves more to trance and progressive!).

The rules are as follows:

  • You MUST create a full arrangement/mix of your track and do it the best quality/standard you are capable of. We won’t accept ‘demos’ or snippets of unfinished tracks.
  • You must name your remix as follows artist name - construction kit name.mp3. For example: Freshly Squeezed Samples - Beside You (Original Mix).mp3. If you use a MIDI file out with the "Construction Kits” folder (i.e. within the "Miscellaneous” folder), then please give your track a title so we can find it easily and make sure you append your artist alias to the start of the file name.
  • You are free to use whatever DAW, plugins and sounds that you like (though we obviously like hearing a few of our sounds as well!). You are free to add vocals or make changes to the melodies however you see fit. However there must be ‘some’ similarity with the original kit/MIDI file, even if it’s just one element taken from it.
  • If you are not looking to get your track signed (as part of the remix competition bonus prizes), your remix can be posted publicly on-line, however download must be disabled. Remixes can’t be distributed for sale without the permission of Freshly Squeezed Samples.
  • All entries will be judged by a combination of Freshly Squeezed Samples team members.
  • We welcome multiply entries from a single participant.
  • We do not accept submissions sent as file attachments.
  • All entries must be provided in at least 320kbps MP3 format.
  • If we receive a track that isn't named correctly, we will exclude your submission from the voting process.
  • The final submission date is 20th of September, 2013.
