So, what fun Midi programs are there.
Preferably free. Can we first tinker before we start spending a lot of savings.
Here are a few Midi programs worth checking out:
With Quartz Audiomaster you can make a lot of fun Midi files using a 16-track Midi sequencer.
You can also change these Midi files and if this is not all you can also use it as an audio recorder.
What's in it:
16 tracks Midi
The program is Freeware (hurrah) and can be downloaded at Digital Soundplanet
This is also a very nice Midi program and again FREEWARE. Click here to download Van Basco's Player.

There are still many programs to discuss, but I think it would be most useful to mention a few websites that are worth checking out.
View them, download them and enjoy all the beauty Midi has to offer us.
Keep in mind that there are also Midi programs that are ad-ware or spyware.
These are programs that are free to use, but at the same time secretly look at what your surfing behavior is. Can they send advertising that apparently interests you.
Shareware are programs that you can use for a certain period of time or for a limited time. After that you have to pay for it.
At least if you want the full version.
Usually, when it isn't, they proudly state that it is adware or spyware free.
