I am quite new to MIDIs so perhaps I am missing something obvious here...
I have quite many MIDIs of different songs downloaded on my desktop and the note patterns in them range from complex to pretty simple.
These MIDIs rarely exceed the file size of 50kB.
I tried working on a MIDI of my own, but it seems that a specific note pattern (that is more or less used throughout the whole MIDI) ends up taking up more than 90 percent of the file size (the file size is 2 MB). This MIDI is about 90 seconds long, like most of the others on my desktop, so there must be some weird property I don't understand.
I need the MIDI to be about the same file size as a the other ones (around 50kB or less).
Just this note pattern repeated twice (a length of 5 seconds) produces a file size of 46kB, which is even higher than most full length MIDIs I have.
Is there something that I can do to make these notes a smaller file size?
I put the note pattern as an attachment, so you can check it out, if you wish to.
