 Jesus Christ Superstar MIDI Files  
   I've collected these from various places around the internet over the past few years and I'm still finding more to add. Some of them are OK, some are pretty awful, and a few are VERY good.
   I'm creating my own either from scratch or by correcting and adding to other peoples previous work in an effort to create THE BEST JCS MIDI FILES IN THE WORLD! I've marked mine
with  by RA . Some are incomplete but I still put 'em here so check them out and tell me what you think (by emailing me a
t robb@musician.org). I don't mind if you download and use and/or post any of my own files. I just ask that you please give me credit for my work. Thanks!
As with all MIDI files, the tonal quality of the music that YOU hear is totally dependent upon the quality of the synthesizer component of the sound card in the computer on which you're listening.  Also different MIDI sound sources have varying volume levels for any given instrument patch so one track may jump out very loudly on your system where on mine the mix is right. MIDI usually always sounds better when played through an external sound module (such as Sound Canvas by Roland) or keyboard (Roland, Yamaha, Casio), but my 6 year old SoundBlaster LIVE still sounds really good. That's what I generally use when mixing my files.
