Copyright-Free MIDI
Net4TV has a set of 30-second "loopable" MIDI that are copyright-free (we created them ourselves) and which, if you like, you may freely transload to your home page. Next issue, we will list a number of sites that are being created that offer libraries of copyright-free or permitted MIDI music for you to use.
Copyright-Free Loops


Looking for background music to add ambience to your webpage or email?

These MIDI files are all 30 seconds long and are designed to be looped. Best of all, they are copyright-free (we created them ourselves for you), and they're very small in data size so they won't have long loading times. But if you find one you'd like to take, please transload it! For your convenience, the full path for transloading is in the link.

After you've transloaded to your own homepage directory, just use this code to put them in your page and loop them. Change "filename.mid" to the name of the file in your directory.

Please do not link directly to these files -- transload them to your own homepage directory and then call them from there into your web page or email. The files are small, and will transload quickly. We've listed the address from which they can be loaded in the link.
The Star Boulevard Transloader -- these files are small enough to use with the free portion of the service.
The Domania Freeloader -- a free transloader, by and for WebTV users.
Web-UP -- a subscription service, also by a WebTV user.
