MIDIPlayer X v2.0 Adds More Controls

MethodRed today released an update for MIDIPlayer X, their popular MIDI file player for the Mac. MIDIPlayer X v2.0 adds a host of new features providing more playback controls, some MIDI file editing, and the ability to save new MIDI files with your custom edits.
