rank windows midis in here
im only really talking about the "big ones" but if you want to rank all 30 something windows clipart ones i cant stop you, legally
https://midis.fandom.com/wiki/Category: ... dia_Folder
this is a good starting place to find midis. ok
im including the ones listed in the media folder page and the windows 3.0 extension page
  1. Onestop- The classic. absolutely my fucking favorite. the guy at microsoft who wrote this fucking article is my enemy. the end of the song is my favorite section.
  2. Town - a happy lovely tune by everyone's favorite Nathan Grigg. really makes me feel like im journeying through a new town ive never seen
  3. Flourish - another classic tune that is still present in da computer. I rank this one slightly lower because I feel like it ends abruptly compared to town but it still fucks hard
  4. ALMONDS-lol i feel like a cow boy when i listen to this
  5. clouds - a beautiful hidden song for the developers. has a slow start but is really, really neat. feels perfect for how weirdly mysterious the credit song is to discover.
  6. Passport - passport was made to advertise passport designs and it is pretty good :)
  7. Someband - casino zone
  8. canyon - a banger by passport designs. i wont deny it slaps. however, it hurts my ears a bit
  9. CSSAMP1 - this one sounds weird no matter what damn soundfont i put on it. however i think its funny so
  10. MPCMID - it's fine, just boring.
  11. Dreamy - some songs on warp zone have ended up with me having a deep loving connection with them. other songs, like dreamy, i get sick of hearing. sorry, dreamy. you're not that bad
  12. BRNDNBRG - this one is a classic but i just find it boring. i prefer jazz to classical
  13. Stomp - someone is going to crucify me for putting this low but it just makes me mad for a reason i cant place
  14. Seasons - i always play this thinking its going to be something else but no its just a straight cover of Vivaldi's four seasons-spring.
  15. METBLAST-you'd think id like this one more because it has guitars in it but idk i just dont vibe with it as much as other midis with banger electric guitar parts in them.
  16. TheCake - i ended up hating this song so much after listening to it on warp zone i removed it from the playlist which required re-exporting the entire game which if you've ever worked with game engines you KNOW is tedious. fuck this song
  17. daisy - daisy is just a different song ripoff. moved to the bottom of my list
rank them as well please. thank you

also uh i mised some songs. feel free to.... add them in lol

ranking the 17 in this post:

flourish > onestop > town > passport > canyon > dreamy > cloud > almonds > metblast > thecake > daisy (this is just she drives me crazy by fine young cannibals) > someband > MPCMID > brndnbrg > CSSAMP1 > seasons > stomp

i listened to all of em here so the soundfont used does inform some of my decisions (specifically someband's low placement):

TOWN.MID will have a special place in my heart because i remember back in the good ol years of 2008, there were roblox places that used it as background music because you couldn't upload music back then so they just inserted code in their places to look for the mid file in your windows directory and play it over and over and over again. shit ruled

also if you havent seen it yet then there are two really dope albums that cover a bunch of windows midis (and there's an album specifically for onestop!!!!!!):

i have to do htis. i have to bump this thread

ok so im using the original soundfont because it's here and also because i assume it's the "intended" "experience"



i can't rank onestop because it makes me too mad. i like the intro too much and then it changes. i wish it would just stay one song. also not ranking daisy or seasons because they're different songs.

in order from worst to best.........

14. stomp: :yikes: :cursed: :worried: :constipated: :nauseated:

13. someband: this made me think of the resident evil basement song, which made me laugh, so it gets a point over stomp for that, but otherwise it hurts my ears

12. almonds: i feel ill. sorry but microsoft gm wavetable synth makes this unlistenable

11. brndnbrg: im not in pain anymore but its a little boring.

10. cssamp1: i had to find a different video for this and well it sounds like a toddler trying to make music. not in a bad way though. just not in a good way

9. thecake: it's a song i guess

8. metblast: again i just really hate the default distortion guitar. but the song itself is better. but still not that exciting. ok wait i just got to the solo which is impressive.

7. town: i might dislike this one because of the soundfont (i'm assuming there are accordions or bagpipes or something in here?) but in terms of the actual melody it's Not Bad

6. clouds: not as good as dreamy but still a nice little tune

5. dreamy: i like this one. it calms me. i would listen to this in my free time. good song!

4. flourish: yeah i like this. a lot. a pleasant "soundscape"

3. passport: makes me think of soundtracks from point and clicks i have encountered, which i really enjoy. in that same vein is "Microsoft Office 97 music - Turning Point", which i have attatched below, because it's tangentially related i guess



2. pinball: yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes

finally, canyon.mid number one baby. you literally cant beat it. it's such a classic. i feel like im going on an adventure. mwah. perfection

thakn you for reading :bighappy: this was really fun to do :saucy: (i should have probably listened with a better soundfont though....)

hi nullcasting :happytime: nice to meet you, great to be here. this was a great idea for a thread

yeah i definitely think i could probably get used to onestop if i listened to it often. but i just really like those first few measures and i want them to be their own song.......

have you heard these songs by the way? maybe you would like them :bighappy:

oh yeah and while these aren't like official tech demos or anything some people made "a tribute album to Yamaha's XG MIDI standard" so you might like that too?! some of the tracks sound like video game music and it's fun to listen to :saucy:
