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.
