Nothing in the music-authoring world is better than actually writing your music! Why? Because you know what you will hear! MakeMusic Finale - http://www.finalemusic.com/

Commercialware versions include export to audio formats. Free version available too, but no export.

This is a nice collection. The admin's and mods decided we should sticky the thread. smiley
Ari Feldman's artistry has been featured in a couple of LB Newsletter articles. I remember one by Alyce, maybe in her Sprite Byte series. I'm pretty sure KCDan used one of Feldman's creations in his side scrolling demo, too.
I like your comments, too, dodica. Your descriptions make this list all the more valuable. Thanks for thinking of and starting this list.

This is a good list of resources.

Yes, I've used Ari's spritelib for years, since I'm NO artist. Some of the sprites that ship with JB/LB are Ari's. The caveman sprite, the crab, the pizza... Since I wrote the original sprite code and demos that Carl incorporated into LB/JB, he grabbed the images as well. I did the original silly crab & pizza game, and I see the legacy continues! tongue

I've used some of the other resources as well. It's great to have these at our disposal, isn't it? It's also nice to see so many talented JB programmers creating such interesting and clever games. Keep up the great work, guys!

Thank you very much dodica for these very useful links.
Do you mind if I copy the whole lot to the French LB/JB forum ? (I will mention you of course)

http://gprime.net/images/mariopiano/

Use Finale or Anvil Studio to make these into MIDI files. Anvil Studio edits directly to MIDI for free, so try that first. If you find that too hard, use one of the commercialware versions of Finale.

This is by the BLINDFOLDED PIANIST. It is not by KOJI KONDO, the original author. The B. Pianist's real name begins with an M (it says it right there on gprime.net).
