Why midi and mp3 files? Midi files contain information, not sound.
This information is sent to your sound card or synth. What you hear is the
result of your hardware, not neccesarily what I hear.
I have recorded many, not all of my midi files, using my synths. The mp3 files
allow you to hear what I intended not what your hardware defines.
Mp3 files are compressed sound files, not quite as good as original .wav
files. If you order the cd - you will get the best sound as I intended it to be.
