This archive also contains a lot of midi music and programs. A large collection of midifiles can be found on, in /systems/ibmpc/ultrasound/sound/midi/files. Some of these files are specific for the Gravis Ultrasound card but most are also usable for other synthesizers. There is an FTP archive at [] . It contains a.o.
