There are many, many additional links you can find doing a keyword search using MIDI, the name of the sequencing software such as Reason or FL Studio, Finale, Band in the Box, and other keywords.  Many sites are commercial pay-for-service sites.  Some are home sites where MIDI enthusiasts have set-up their own downloadable and uploadable links.  Look for sites ending in the “.edu” domain which are educational in nature.  They are usually more reliable and longer-lived web sites than others
