Symphonix Evolution Player is a basic MIDI file player that supports General MIDI files using the GM/GS specification with up to 16 tracks. It also allows you to play Symphonix Evolution files created in our Symphonix Evolution iPad app on your iPhone using a suite of over 150 wavetable instruments!

Open MIDI files directly from Safari or Mail, or drag them into iTunes on your PC and sync to your device.

Symphonix Evolution Player also contains a Piano Roll viewer and editor that allows some basic note editing and quantization to be applied (Use our Symphonix Evolution app for full notation editing and MIDI recording). Core MIDI output is supported for the iPad using a suitable interface connected to the USB Camera Connection Kit.

PLEASE NOTE: This is a "Player" app only and has limited functionality including very basic navigation while a song is playing. (For example, it is aimed at playing an entire song and does not include pause/forward/rewind functions). This app was originally written to provide a way for songs created in the full "Symphonix Evolution" iPad app to be played back on an iPhone. Also note that running the app on an iPad will make some functions available that are -not- present when running on the iPhone, including a notation/score display and the ability to scroll to any position in the song. We are currently looking at ways that the functionality can be extended in future updates - send suggestions to our support mailbox if you have ideas you'd like us to add!

See the full-featured Symphonix Evolution iPad app for more features, including:
* Real time MIDI recording
* Create and edit score notation by dragging notes
* Selection of "full" or "reduced" instrument set
* Ability to change keyboard width
* Much, much more!

Limited sound quality when many voices

Downloaded for iPod 4 to play midi files from Internet site. Played Borodin's Polovtsian Dance from Classical Midi Connection site. When there are only a few voices, the player played okay. However, when there were many voices, there was a great deal of static so as to be distracting. Also, only a portion of the initial screen was visible without any panning function and may be a limitation due to being an iPod as opposed to iPad. Other screens were usable but the piano roll display did not seem to roll during plays so it's function seemed limited.

Doesn't work with Voice Over!

Apparently doesn't work with Voice Over. Tried to copy files with a .mid extension through iTunes. Files didn't leave the document folder on iTunes and no sign that they were loaded on the iPad. No Voice Over is disappointing and the file transfer might not be for the .mid files I tested but I am not impressed!

Needs to be able to display lyrics from midi files

Needs to be able to display lyrics from midi files and .kar karaoke midi files.

Needs to be able to view at least 2 musical staves at the same time!!

Other then that's it's great fun to use with a GM synth or GM compatible digital piano like a Yamaha Clavinova CVP.
