General MIDI Player is an easy way to turn your Mac into an instrument, using its built-in General MIDI support. Starting in version 2, it also plays back type 1 General MIDI files!

You can play the General MIDI instruments using either your mouse, computer keyboard (including support for non-US keyboards), or MIDI device (both hardware and software MIDI devices supported). You can even play along yourself while a General MIDI song plays at the same time. It has a simple, one-screen interface, that will let you start making music with your favorite General MIDI instrument in seconds!


Release Notes:

* Added ability to loop MIDI files
* MIDI input on channel 10 now correctly plays standard General MIDI drum sounds
* Audio now switched ON by default on app startup

Nice! - Very easy to use and does what it advertises. Nice that the developer is implementing new features/bug fixes based on feedback! Priced nicely too.

Version 1.3
Review by jazz basser

Not a midi player - Beware that even though the name is General midi player - it will not play midi files. I should have read more closely but the name implies its a midi player and what midi player app wouldn’t have the most basic ability to play a midi file. I’ll skip a cup of coffee this afternoon and make for the lost $2. Cute app for the price but unfortunately the only use I have is to play midi files. not noodle around on a screen keyboard.
