Arabic Popular

All tunes here are remixes of Standard MIDI Files containing instrumental versions of Arabic pop songs. You can find the original singer's name under «Source», if possible. Most of the files I used can be found here.

Nearly all songs are using native arabic microtonal scales. In the original SMFs, they were pitch bend coded. I re-coded the scales using Roland's system exclusive scale tuning parameters, so you won't be able to enjoy the original tuning when playing the SMF on your standard soundcard.
