Playback Controls

The next time you load your new file into MIDIPlayer X, your desired tempo and track mutes will load as you saved them.

Very fast support

Piano David

Had a problem with my reading expertise. I mean, when I see push on a door, I’m supposed to pull, right? However, when I emailed them that my music wouldn’t cycle to the next song, they answered right away (even on New Years Day, I might add) to keep clicking autoplay until it turns blue. They weren’t smart alecks and didn’t tell me to go back and read the instructions, dummy.
For two bucks this is a great program.

It just works


Easy to use and it works great!

Fantastic company with a much needed product

I needed a quick way to preview MIDI files, since Apple pulled MIDI support from the Finder. With this application, just drag a folder full of MIDI files to the application window, and use the square brackets, [ or ], to quckly move through the tracks you dragged. Does what is promises and adds some nice bells and whistles. The company’s support is outstanding. Even when I was a bit terse with my questions, they were patient and extremely helpful. This purchase is a no brainer, especially at this price.
