Our Goals, Guidelines and Rules
MidKar.com was created to be an archive site for previously posted MIDI files for members of the MidKar group MidKar and abides by the rules set forth in the MidKar Group.

There will be no commercial/professional MIDI sequences posted to this site. The intention is to archive MIDI files for our members who have selected Daily Digest, No Mail or Special Notices instead of the normal Individual mail selection. It will also enable members to go back and find a file that they may have not downloaded at the time of the original post and also enable new members to go back and find previous posted MIDI's.

We intend to archive the MIDI's by general category. This site will be a work in progress as over 8000 MIDI's have been posted to MidKar since April of 2004 and it is going to take some time to archive all of the previous posts and at least 5 new posts are made to MidKar every day so this will always be an on going project.

Please understand that the MidKar Group exists only because of the many past lawsuits on innocent people posting professional MIDI files on their sites. Most of the people sued had no idea that the files they downloaded off the web, involved professionally sequenced files. Just because you got your files online, doesn't mean they are public domain. A very large portion of the files floating on the Internet are either pro files or stripped pro files. Stripped files are files that have the embedded information contained within the file, which you can't see without a sequencing editor or viewing program, completely removed by people trying to remix or for some reason, change the file. Once this changed file is saved, all the original embedded information is normally lost! For more information on viewing the structural and author's content inside of MIDI files see our Tech Links section.

MidKar believes that posting files that have the embedded name of the sequencer who made the file, will help curb the posting of professional files on the web. There are plenty of non-pro sequencers who make professionally sounding files, many who are even better than the pros. A professional sequencer is nothing more that a person who gets paid for the files they make. Most of these professional sequencers get paid by the MIDI company they work for. On This Page is a small list of commercial MIDI companies copyright signature keys that you may find embedded in a professional file and you should not post one of their files to your website unless you have express written consent to do so! A few professional companies do allow the posting of some of their files!

If you are a current member of MidKar and have a website related to MIDI music be sure to request a link by posting to the MidKar Group with your website title, url and a small description of your site so we can add it to one of our links pages! You may also send a personal Email to MidKar Admin with your request to link.
