Upload a MIDI file

We need you! Without the help of the hundreds of musicians who upload their MIDI files we wouldn't be here. If you would like to contribute and share your MIDI files with your fellow producers, fill in the form below and submit your MIDI files. It is very much appreciated!

Import info for your MIDI

Beatport track URL, for exmaple: https://www.beatport.com/track/track-name/0000000
Just a moment, we're checking beatport for you...
Copy/paste the beatport track URL and click import to auto-complete the MIDI upload form below.
You can still edit before submitting. Track not on beatport? Just fill in the form below!

Info for your MIDI file:

Please supply information of the original track you are uploading.

The original artist of this track, not the remixer(s).
Track title. Also include the remixer(s) but leave out additions such as "Original Mix", "Extended Mix", "Album Version", etc.
For members this is your user account name, for guests it will be "Anonymous".
The record label that released the track. If there is no label involved, fill in N/A.
Year of first release or first appearance.
Tempo in beats per minute (BPM) of this track.
Choose the key of the song. If you are unsure, select "Unknown"
Select the most appropriate genre.
Some information about your MIDI. For example: "Contains bass, lead and chords. Drop and break are included, but drums are not." URLs will be removed. Maximum 250 characters.
Select "Yes" if your MIDI can be made premium exclusive.
Choose the MIDI you would like to upload. This must be a .mid file. Please upload all channels of the same track in one MIDI, do not upload separate ones for pads, synths, bass, etc. Also try to give your channels proper names (ie bass, lead, chords). For extra karma add a channel named nonstop2k.com :)
By clicking the "Upload MIDI" button you agree to the
terms for uploading MIDI files(+)
to Nonstop2k.

Terms for uploading

By uploading or sending MIDI files to Nonstop2k.com, through this form, via email, via the forum or any other way, you agree to give us a non-exclusive right to distribute and publish these MIDI files.

If you have given Nonstop2k your consent to publish a MIDI as a premium MIDI, for example, but not limited too, by checking the "Premium preference" checkbox, the MIDI becomes exclusive Nonstop2k content and may not be distributed or published via any other channel.

After we have received your MIDI, Nonstop2k reserves the right to alter or reject your MIDI or the information provided for this MIDI.

Nonstop2k does not remove any MIDI files from the website unless you are the copyright holder (ie, the original artist or the record label). This means that you cannot request to remove a MIDI you have made if it is not your own track.

By clicking the "Upload MIDI" button you state that:

  1. The MIDI file you upload is made by yourself (uploading MIDI files made by someone else is not allowed).
  2. The MIDI file is your own MIDI transcription of an existing track, or your own work.
  3. The length of your MIDI is not shorter than 6 seconds.
  4. You made sure your MIDI is on key and contains as much correct notes as possible.
  5. Your MIDI contains at least the notes of the melody and bass, or the chords.
  6. You understand these terms and agree to the terms as such.
When you're done, hit the "Upload MIDI" button and your MIDI will be uploaded! Remember that all MIDI files are checked prior to being published on Nonstop2k.

MIDI Upload FAQ

How do I get my MIDI on your website?

1. Fill in the MIDI upload form above (or use our beatport importer), select your MIDI file and hit the "Upload MIDI" button.
2. Your file is sent to the admins for validation, this usually takes about 7 days (sometimes a bit longer).
3. If approved your MIDI will be scheduled for publishing and soon be available on the site :)

Do I have to use the beatport importer?

Nope, but if the original song is on beatport we recommend you do. It saves you work and avoids errors, which in turn saves us work too!

I get the message: "Sorry, we cant read this beatport URL due to territory restrictions."

If you have used a valid beatport URL, but we still can't read it either beatport is down for maintenance, or the track page has territory restrications. This means that people from some countries are not able to visit this page. Because our server is based in The Netherlands, we can't import this page if this page isn't available to The Netherlands. You could try a different track page if there is one or fill in the data manually.

Why doesn't my file show up on the site?

All MIDI files need to be validated by an admin before they are approved. We download the MIDI, check if it works and if the data that is filled in is correct. Usually it means we haven't updated yet and you'll have to wait a little longer.

You have updated and my file still isn't there

This means your MIDI was rejected, unfortunately we can't tell you why this is, but it could be one of the following reasons:
- The file upload was errornous and we have a 0kb file that doesn't play. If you are sure you're MIDI is according to the standards just upload it again!
- The MIDI is off key or has wrong timing (remember that small mistakes are unavoidable, but for big notable mistakes we will reject a MIDI file).
- The MIDI is not in compliance with the terms (ie, not made by yourself, too short, your own track, too few notes).

How long does validation take?

We update about once a week. If approved your MIDI will be scheduled for publishing which may take up to 3 weeks, but it's usually faster.

My question is not in this list...

Ask it at the forum or email us!
