3. What does each era mean?

Do you have problems with finding your favorite Touhou game? don't worry, this quick guide will tell you what each era represents

Retro Era - from touhou 1 to touhou 5
Classic Era - from touhou 6 to touhou 9 (2002 - 2005)
Modern Era 1 - from touhou 10 to touhou 12 (2007 - 2010)
Modern Era 2 - from touhou 13 onwards (2010 - Present)
Spin-Offs - games that do not include the main plot (ex. TH 9.5)
Fighting Games - his name says it, does not matter the style (Ex. TH 10.5, TH 15.5)
Music CDs - ZUN over time, has released some music discs, these CDs have arrangements as well as exclusive music
Fan-Games & Related - the fangames are games made by fans, many of them, without the participation of ZUN, the related games ZUN could be involved in some way
Famous Arranges - arrangements of some artists/circles who became very famous in popular culture (Ex. Bad apple, McRoll, Nights of Nights)

4. Basically, what is a MIDI?

MIDI means "Musical Instrument Digital Interface" and its an electronic musical instrument industry specification that enables a wide variety of digital musical instruments, computers and other related devices to connect and communicate with one another. It is a set of standard commands that allows electronic musical instruments, performance controllers, computers and related devices to communicate. You can say its like an electronic score.
Very difficult to understand? Imagine this, the roll of paper that gets into a pianola, but electronic, now instead of piano you can use several different instruments, And all that added to a low spec and easily modifiable. That would be a summary of MIDI

5. Contact me

Do you have midis that are not on this list? Is there a problem with the downloads?
You are free to send me an email! -> touhoujukebox@gmail.com <-
If you want to send me an email with a midi to add to the list, try to give me all the possible details (title, credits/creator, etc) This is not a requirement, but it is appreciated that you provide the details
You can also contact me through my social networks that are in my profile, although I strongly recommend thatuse the email, discord, or steam
Remember,  BLACK MIDI ISN'T ALLOWED!

6. Trivia

  • There is a myth that the MIDIs sound different (or even better) in the any demo version of touhou (But this is unconfirmed)
  • Another myth is that the MIDIs released on the old ZUN blog, were intended for use in the original PC-98 games (Similar to touhou 2) Although this is very unlikely
  • the MIDI Did You See That Shadow? was poorly ripped from touhoumon (GBA)
  • Tortle le magic originally had no music
  • In the prototypes of The Phantasmagoria of Dim.Dream and Lotus Land Story It is possible to see an option to change the format of music to MIDI (sc-88) format (This is possible to see it by editing a text file) Although in the case of Lotus Land Story, the text was completely removed from the music options in the final version, it is likely that Lotus Land Story wasn't going to have MIDI music. Even though the trial version had this text within the music options, it was not accessible without modifying miko.cfg, and even then, there wasn't any MIDI music.
  • sagittarius shikoku has used several nicknames, for example "akira" or simply "?"
  • The first track in the soundtrack, track 00, is not the menu music, but rather, the Stage 1 theme, "Illusionary Night ~ Ghostly Eyes". It's possible that because the song originally appeared on ZUN's album Ghostly Field Club, the song's' MIDI was simply copypasted into the game's soundtrack before the rest of it was written. The menu music, "Eternal Night Vignette ~ Eastern Night" is track 01. [ref. TCRF.net]
  • The numbering on the soundtrack skips over track 02, likely because the song that would normally go there, the Stage 1 theme, is track 00. [ref. TCRF.net]
  • As "Voyage 1969", the Last Word theme, is simply an edit of track 13, "Voyage 1970", it goes by the track id of 13b, making it the only song on the soundtrack to not follow the typical order of "th08_##". A similar trait is seen in Perfect Cherry Blossom between "Bloom Nobly, Cherry Blossoms of Sumizome ~ Border of Life" and "Border of Life". [ref. TCRF.net]
  • th08_16.mid (Ending theme) has some notes after loop, though they seem to be a copy of a main part. [ref. TCRF.net]
  • th08_19.mid (Mokou's theme) has some notes after loop too. They are slightly different from piano melody. [ref. TCRF.net]
  • MIDI that were extracted (with Touhou ToolKit or Brightmoon for example) from trial version 0.02 can't be opened in Windows Media Player. If you open them with MIDI sequencer (FL Studio for example), they'll sound horrible due to different pitch, they has endless looping and they are shortened. Oddly, they sound normal in-game. [ref. TCRF.net]
  • everything points to Karamitasu and ryoya1295 being the same person, much of the midi ryoya1295 seem improved versions of Karamitasu, although some are identical

    Very useful resource, but I see a few mistakes here and there. I'll be adding them to this post.

    Retro Era:
    Touhou 1
    *The unknown version of the Legend of KAGE is identical to the ZUN version down to the checksums. They're duplicates.
    *The unknown version of Iris is identical to the ZUN version down to the checksums. They're duplicates.
    *The unknown version of Shrine of the Wind is identical to the Blargzargo Hlaaluington and ZUN version down to the checksums. They're duplicates.
    Touhou 4
    *The Wobuffet3 version of Scarlet Symphony ~ Scarlet Phoneme is misspelled as Wobuffeet3.

    Classic Era:
    Touhou 8
    *The link for the ZUN version of Voyage 1970 is placed on the "Voyage 1970" text instead of the "ZUN" text.

    Modern Era:
    Touhou 10
    *The unknown version of The Gensokyo the Gods Loved is identical to the ryoya1295 version down to the checksums. They're duplicates.
    *The TouhouMIDICreator version of Candid Friend is misspelled as TouhouMIDICreater.
    *The Pikkun Moriya Scarlet version of Fall of Fall ~ Autumnal Waterfall is identical to the Samidare version down to the checksums. They're duplicates.
    *The Piano Only version of Faith is for the Transient People is identical to the Benopia version down to the checksums. They're duplicates.
    *The Shirai Yuki - GM version of Native Faith is identical to the Shirai Yuki - XG version down to the checksums. They're duplicates.

    Modern Era 2:
    Touhou 14
    *The Wobuffet3 version of The Shining Needle Castle Sinking In the Air is misspelled as Wobuffeet3.
    Touhou 16
    *The Karamitasu version of A Star of Hope Rises in the Blue Sky is identical to the ryoya1295 version down to the checksums. They're duplicates.
    *There are two spaces between Deep-Mountain Encounter and the downloads instead of one.
    *The Karamitasu version of Illusionary White Traveler is identical to the ryoya1295 version down to the checksums. They're duplicates.
    *The ryoya1295 version of Does the Forbidden Door Lead to This World, or the World Beyond? is missing a parenthese at the end.
    *The Karamitasu version of Secret God Matara ~ Hidden Star in All Seasons is identical to the ryoya1295 version down to the checksums. They're duplicates.
    Touhou 17
    *The ryoya1295 version of Everlasting Red Spider Lily has two parentheses at the end.

    I've not taken a look at everything else quite yet. I'll be adding more observations as I go.

    I appreciate the thanks in the update, but let it be known that "Ulrik70" (actually Ulrik54) is another one of my usernames and not a separate person.

    Could the Seihou midis be extracted in the same way the Classic era midis were?
    (edit: found a way, use brightmoon)
