MethodRed Introduces MIDIPlayer X
IRVINE, California, January 22, 2015 – MethodRed announced today the release of MIDIPlayer X, the fastest, easiest way to play MIDI ﬁles on your Mac. MIDIPlayer X works with your MIDI hardware and software, and will play any MIDI ﬁle to your choice of available MIDI outputs, either hardware or software, or to its own built-in GM-compatible virtual synth.
“Sometimes you just need to audition one or several MIDI ﬁles, and adding them to your current project or opening new ones in your DAW can slow down your work ﬂow.” said Doug Hanson, founder of MethodRed. “MIDIPlayer X is designed to be small, fast, and elegantly simple to use - just drag and drop and your MIDI ﬁle is playing.”
• Plays any Standard MIDI File
• Works with any MIDI hardware and software
• Built-in GM-compatible synth
• Simple drag and drop operation
Powered by Apple’s CoreMIDI technology, MIDIPlayer X works with virtually all commercial MIDI hardware and software. It will locate all available MIDI outputs, both hardware and virtual, so you can select your desired sound source. Easily switch playback between an external keyboard or sound module, or to other software instruments and apps inside your Mac.
MIDIPlayer X includes its own software synth using Apple's CoreAudio technology. So even if you have no other MIDI hardware or software available on your Mac, you’ll always have a 16part multitimbral, General MIDI-compatible synth available.
Simply drag and drop your ﬁle on to MIDIPlayer X, and playback can start immediately - eliminating extra clicks or keystrokes. It’s especially handy since the Mac no longer plays MIDI ﬁles from the Finder. MIDIPlayer X will display ﬁle information including title, tempo, time signature, as well as active MIDI channels and System Exclusive data.
Pricing & Availability
MIDIPlayer X is available now at a special introductory price of $0.99 from Apple’s Mac App Store.
MIDIPlayer X requires Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks or later.
