Have you ever wanted to learn how to play a song but the only thing you have is the MIDI file? Then this program will be very useful for you. It can open and play MIDI files, but not only that; it can show you the music score of them by means of an exclusive system that can transform the data contained in the MIDI into standard music notation, allowing you to read and follow the music score. An advantage of the program is that it can show the ornaments (i.e., trills, grace notes and tremolos) as such and not as a series of repeated notes, which can be confusing and difficult to read. The program has many of the same controls as any music player, so you can adjust the volume, rewind and fast-forward the file, and so on. Also, you can print the music scores so you don't have to be in front of your computer to read and play them. The program has a simple yet comprehensive startup guide that will help you to begin using it.
The program is also compatible with Karaoke (.KAR) and Notation (.NOT) files. The latter are made with Notation Musician and Notation Composer, both programs created by the same company. You can download and use the program as much as you want, since it is freeware and has no limitations.
