MIDI Tools

Software Informer Virus Free award

MIDI Tools is a nifty application, providing (as its name implies) various MIDI-related tools:

  • Real-time MIDI input and output monitors.
  • Capturing, filtering and saving MIDI input messages.
  • Windows edition only: The creation of MIDI thru connections (e.g. from/to virtual MIDI I/O ports).
  • A virtual MIDI controller board, capable of receiving and sending control change messages.
  • A virtual MIDI keyboard (outputting note messages), controlled by the computer mouse. This includes a primitive arpeggiator.
  • A window from which you can send NRPN and RPN messages.
  • A window from which you can send MIDI Program Change messages, optionally prefixed by Bank Select MSB/LSB messages.
  • A window from which you can send MIDI System Exclusive/Common/Real-time messages.
  • A powerful System Exclusive message editor/uploader/downloader.
  • A MIDI data byte converter/calculator.
  • Four virtual Mackie Control displays.

Many of the hardware audio editors from Mountain Utilities also contain some or all of these tools, but MIDI Tools provides them without the hardware-specific hullabaloo of these editors.
Thus, MIDI Tools can be very useful for small tasks and troubleshooting.

MIDI Tools 2.2.1 for macOS

Main new feature of this version:

The application has become more user-friendly concerning data errors in ".stp" and ".mru" configuration files:

  • On startup, when the application encounters a data error in a configuration file, the application now mentions the exact name of the offending file, and no longer refuses to start. Hence it is no longer necessary to delete corrupt configuration files manually.
  • On exit, the application reports any errors while saving configuration files.

See section 2 of the manual for the full list of changes.
