The Curse Of Monkey Island MIDI music

The OldSchool project gave me an idea:
what if I sequenced note-by-note, instrument-by-instrument some of the great tracks played by top quality players (including Michael Land himself on electric bass) in this great game?

I tried to capture every single note (man, even the errors, when possible), even with the limitations of General Midi (for instance, timbales have a great variety of sounds, even though they are just two pieces of drums, and General Midi has only got two sounds for them, high and low).

So far, here they are:

Stan's theme:

Download! (click here)

Download VST Version, to see the similarities with the original one, just for fun

Wally's theme:

Download! (click here) (WILL BE UPDATED SOON because of some percussions related inaccuracies)

The intro! Or at least, the catchy part of it:

Download! (click here)

Work in progress:

- Main theme (!):
Only misses 2 steel drums tracks and it's done.

Let me know what you think, your opinion on this is really important!

These are quite excellent.

I'm not of a musically gifted position to judge them, but as a fan, you've done a great job. I am impressed with what you've been able to capture within Midi format.

I look forward to your Main Theme, especially with the hard work it sounds like this work takes.

My god...these are so good! You sir are a definite candidate for composer if the guys doing the Curse demake need someone, that is some seriously good work.

Thanks guys, really
But as far as I know, that demake project was dead

Anyway, here's an update for you:

http://www.mediafire.com/?xbtcqzgx7a19b9j

This is like... 50% of the entire and complete work for the main theme

It's got:

Drums
Percussions
Bass
Rhythm Guitar
Lead Guitar
MT-32 Organ (it still needs some corrections here and there, but... yes, there actually IS a MT-32 Organ in the recording, and it looks like it's taken directly from MI1, and so I did; and, as Land did on the recording, I still have to make some adjustments)

I'll do my best :P

In the while,

after a very short conversation with Peter McConnell on facebook, here's what I got hold on:

This is just a MI2 midi with a VST arrangement, as the title suggests.
But listen to those sounds, do they remind you something?

spoiler:

Yes, I managed to get my hands on some of the virtual instruments used in CMI, EFMI and also in Grim Fandango :O

You should upload these to SoundCloud if you haven't considered it.

Never thought of that, but I guess it doesn't accept MIDIs, that's the main problem

On the other hand, I'll definitely upload the other mp3 files on SoundCloud, thanks
