MIDI Auto-Accompaniment Systems

Install a complete MIDI package (RMCA) ...

Please read first the important information about the compatibility of the MIDI programs
with various computer types and Windows versions! Thank you!

A) If your computer system meets the requirements described there, please ...

1.)   create the following directory structure on your computer: "C:\RMCA\addons"!

If it should be sufficient for you to use the Windows native MIDI Out port "Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth" (which would actually not be recommended !) read on at point 3. The remarks under the next point 2 would then be irrelevant for you.

2.)   Otherwise 
download the "KOR Soundfont" from the internet and save its *.sf2-file (KOR Soundfont - GM Complete 5.0.sf2) in the directory "C:\RMCA". Then  download from the Internet the tool "VirtualMIDISynth" from CoolSoft and install it in the directory "C:\RMCA\addons". Now start the tool and configure it as follows: make it the default MIDI device and add the KOR soundfont you just downloaded to it. In the program's advanced options tab reduce the additional output buffer. Try to reduce it near to zero! Select the "KOR Soundfont" as the active font and read the further notes on the program. Then activate "VirtualMIDISynth"!

Attention: "VirtualMIDISynth" must always be started before RMCA Pro / Jam partner, so that the MIDI-program can recognize the special driver and "offer" it to you as MIDI out port! This can always be done e.g. with the following input command in the Windows command line (CMD): "C:\RMCA\addons\VirtualMIDISynth.exe" or by double clicking in the explorer on C:\RMCA\addons\VirtualMIDISynth.exe. Provided that the program paths have been taken over as indicated here, RMCA Pro can be started at the same time as the KOR Soundfont and VirtualMIDISynth and is then immediately "ready for use". For this purpose, fortunately, the following small startup program of only 20 kB can also be downloaded and saved in the same directory as "RMCA.exe" itself. It additionally contains helpful links to the XDigits.com website and the RMCA Pro help file. 

 Click here to download RMCAStart.exe

3.)    Now Download and install RMCA Pro / Jam partner using the link at the top right into the directory "C:\RMCA". At the end of the installation, please use the offered option to install the existing styles. All styles should be extracted to the ...\RMCA\styles directory or appropriate subdirectories.

4.)    After starting the program please open also the "MIDI" tab in the lower part of the main window. As "MIDI Out Port" select "VirtualMIDISynth" or another specified program e.g. "Microsoft GS Wavetable Synth", if you do not have "VirtualMIDISynth" installed.

5.)    In addition, please select from RMCA Pro's / Jam partner's main menu: Windows -> Global settings and there at the top right from the list the file "GM.RCI". 

B) Various Styles ...

Now you can download and install another approx. 5500 styles - but you can only activate them if you are a registered program user! Simply click the following link and install all styles into the directory "...\RMCA\styles\various". Have fun!

C) Important now are some playlists that you can download and install ...

   My own private playlist: 66 instrumental
tracks, recorded live and modern mastered

( - ???  Usable for Windows system users only  ???)

Important noteUsers of other operating systems need
perhaps an "MP3-player"
 that can handle *.m3u files (playlists),
such as for Apple users for example "Foobar2000" or "VCL media player".
In the corresponding 
players - at the configuration line
provided for it in the settings, 
e.g. under "Play location" at
"Foobar2000" or for execution with a 
suitable Internet browser the
following case-sensitive entry must be made or 
taken over by "copy & paste":


or Click herefor all tracks.

 The "special thing" about all my music files - some of which were created more
than 15 years ago - is that they are "mastered" in an optimal and modern way.
This applies to the uniform sound, regardless of when and how the recordings
were made, as well as to the frequency response, dynamics, volume and sound,
which is now essentially optimized over all years of creation and independent of
the instruments and technical possibilities used, and which corresponds to the
so-called "industry standard" (e.g. for studio recordings of drums, guitars etc.).

  Another special feature is that no permanently installed Internet connection is

required to play the music files. The files have been stored online in a format that
   allows them to be "streamed" "outdoors" as "mobile data" using e.g. LTE
(Long Term Evolution). With the cellular network, mobile data can be
transmitted in greater quantities and at higher speeds over the air interface.
Please activate your network for mobile data playback and start the playlist


in your mp3 player or within your internet browser.
