I want to get MIDI files for the following Newsboys songs: "Lord (I Don't Know)", "Father, Blessed Father" and "Hallelujah" (these are all on the album "Adoration: The Worship Album").
The files should each have at least three tracks: guitar, bass, and percussion. (This is negotiable if you have compelling reasons why it can't be done.) The files should be in MIDI format 1. There should be one song per file.
(The sheet music for the songs is widely available, I just don't have good software for constructing a MIDI file from sheet music.)
This project is a trial balloon. If successful, I'd like to have more projects for creating MIDI files for contemporary Christian music.
These files are NOT intended for redistribution. They are intended for use within my group at church and will not be copied, sold, or distributed.
1) Deliverables must be in ready-to-run condition, as follows (depending on the nature of the deliverables):
a) no compression/encryption of the deliverables,
b) tested before delivery on a Windows 2000 or XP system,
c) MIDI format 1,
d) one song per file,
e) original copyright information should be included and viewable within the files (e.g. within the File Info Dialog box of Cakewalk's Music Creator program).
2) The songs should generally match the songs on the aforementioned album in terms of pitch, tempo, and number of stanzas & choruses. Matching the album's lead-in, interludes, etc. is desirable, but not required. The desire is to have a accompaniment music to sing along with (that is, there should be some sort of lead-in at the beginning, but one doesn't have to match a complex lead-in).
