I need a simplest program to load, edit (cut, add, modify notes, add, delete, merge tracks ...) I need to do some basic works on midifiles to suit my needs then save them. I also need to play back while editing midifiles and see notes appearing in the virtual keyboard. Do you know any program that could do it but in simplest way ?

Something like synthesia but with complete editing midifiles features


  • Asking for "a tool like X" is never giving enough details, even if linked. You should always list your requirements explicitly (which you partly did). Please see How to ask for an alternative to some software and the questions linked to it for details. The more precise you point out your requirements, the better are your chances for good fitting answers, so feel encouraged to edit your question ;) Good luck!

Anvil Studio is a free software that comes with a MIDI editor. You can look into that.

Among its features are:

  • Record notes from an external MIDI keyboard.
  • Enter notes from Computer keyboard while real-time recording or manually composing.
  • Select, Copy, Edit, Paste notes.
  • The Perform screen lets you wire together on-screen modules for real-time manipulation of MIDI sounds.
  • Option to echo to SoundCard while recording MIDI, even when recording from external keyboard.
