1. Introduction

"MIDITrail" is a MIDI player which provides 3D visualization of MIDI datasets.
You can enjoy not only listening but also viewing.
MIDITrail supports SMF format 0/1, and multiple MIDI ports.
MIDITrail is available for Windows, macOS and iOS.

2. System requirement

OS: macOS 10.12(Sierra), 10.13(High Sierra), 10.14(Mojave), 10.15(Catalina), 11(Big Sur), 12(Monterey)

It is recommended that your Mac has high performance graphics for smooth animation.
If the MIDI datasets contains a lot of notes, the software needs more performance graphics.
As long as the performance of your Mac allows, please enjoy MIDITrail with large window.

3. How to install and execute

(1) How to setup

Extract ZIP file, and open "MIDITrail".

(2) First setup

At first, you must setup the MIDI OUT port.
Select "MIDI OUT..." from "Option" menu, then "MIDI OUT configuration" dialog will appear.

[Port A]
At least, you must select the MIDI OUT device of "Port A". Ordinary MIDI datasets is sent to "Port A".
If you select "Internal Wavetable Synthesizer", you have to select a wavetable file.

[Port B,C,D,E,F]
If you want to play the MIDI datasets which uses multiple ports, you must select the MIDI OUT device of port B, C, and so on.
To play the MIDI datasets which uses multiple ports, it is necessary to prepare MIDI interface and MIDI module which supports multiple ports.

[Wavetable file path]
If you want to use "Internal Wavetable Synthesizer", you have to select the wavetable file.
The extension of the wavetable file must be ".dls" or ".sf2".
MIDITrail assigns channel No.10 for percussion.
MIDITrail's internal synthesizer is implemented very simply and has poor performance.
Depending on the wavetable file, the sound may not be output correctly.

(3) How to uninstall

Delete "MIDITrail" application.

4. Usage

(1) How to open a MIDI file

Select "Open File..." from "File" menu, the Open File dialog will appear. And choose a Standard MIDI File (*.mid).
Or you can drag and drop a MIDI file into the window of MIDITrail.

(2) How to play/pause/resume/stop

Push the following keys, or use "Playback" menu.

SPACEPlay / Pause / Resume
12Skip Back / Skip Forward
45Playback Speed Down / Up
F2Double speed playback

(3) Folder Playback

MIDITrail can open MIDI data files stored in folder in sequence. MIDITrail opens the files in ascending order by filename.

1. Folder selection

When you select "Open Folder..." from "File" menu, the folder selection dialog will appear.
Here you have to select the folder that contains the Standard MIDI File (*.mid).
You can also drag and drop the forlder into the window of MIDITrail.

2. File switching

You can also use the following keyboard shortcut.

Open previous file.
COMMAND + N Open next file.

3. Folder Playback

When you select "Folder Playback" from "Playback" menu, MIDITrail playback the next file after end of playback automatically.

(4) How to move viewpoint in 3D space

You can move freely in 3D space, and look at MIDI datasets from all directions by operation of keyboard and mouse, like FPS (First Person Shooter) game.
Although there is sense of incongruity in the beginning, it will be very comfortable as experience is gained.

Mouse operation

When you click the window, it will become the view control mode by the mouse, and mouse cursor will disappear.
The eye direction synchronizes movement of your mouse.
If you click once again, view control mode will be canceled.
And you can rotate piano roll using mouse wheel.

Keyboard operation

Put your index finger on D, middle finger on W, third finger on A.

WSIt moves forward and backward.
ADIt moves left and right.
QEIt goes up and down.
ZCIt moves along the direction of MIDI datasets.
(In PinoRollRain, it moves along the piano keyboard.)
When you push move key with SHIFT key, you can move at high speed.
You can control the eye direction.

For a left-handed person

You can also use a cursor key. If you use a mouse with your left hand, this one may be convenience.

It moves forward and backward.
It moves left and right.
PgUpPgDnIt goes up and down.
,.It moves along the direction of MIDI datasets.
(In PinoRollRain, it moves along the piano keyboard.)
SHIFT + []
SHIFT + []

You can switch the display/effect at "View" menu.

The piano roll bar will move up/down or right/left with change of pitch bend.
Some MIDI animation works are using pitch bend to shift the piano roll bars without change keys. If the MIDI animation is not displayed correctly, please disable the pitch bend effect to fix the piano roll bars.

(11) MIDI IN Monitor

You can view data sets received from MIDI IN device in realtime.
Select "MIDI IN..." from "Option" menu, then "MIDI IN configuration" dialog will appear.

Select the MIDI IN device for monitoring.
If you check the MIDITHRU, MIDITrail will send data sets received from MIDI IN to MIDI OUT.

If anti-aliasing is enabled, a notch (jaggy) will decrease and a more beautiful picture will be displayed.
However, since processing of anti-aliasing is heavy, performance may be poor when you select a upper level.
If your Mac does not support anti-aliasing, it is displayed as "Not supported".

[Background image file path]
If you want to display the background image, specify the file path of the image.
The extension of the image file must be ".jpg" or ".png".
MIDITrail supports a bitmap file that pixel format is 8bit RGB or 8bit RGBA.

5. Restriction

(1) Synchronization of MIDI sound and display

If you use the MIDI module which delays sound (such as software sound modules), the MIDI sound and display may not synchronize.

(2) Performance of graphics

MIDITrail renders all notes of the MIDI file in real time.
Therefore if MIDI file has a large number of notes, the load of rendering becomes high.
In order to enjoy MIDI file which contains tens of thousands of notes comfortably, you have to use Mac which has high performance graphics.

(3) Multiple ports

In specification of SMF (Standard MIDI File), a method to select port is not defined.
However there is the unofficial method (*1) to select port. MIDITrail supports that method, but may be unable to play the MIDI file. It depends on the MIDI file.
(*1) Meta event (FF 21 01 pp) is the command to select port.

(4) Time format of standard MIDI file

MIDITrail can't open the MIDI file whose delta time represents actual time.

6. FAQ

(1) Q. The animation is not smooth.

Please try to change window size to small, and turn off anti-aliasing. Then the load of rendering becomes low.
Check FPS value in window title. If the FPS value is under 60, the performance of graphics is insufficient.
When MIDI file has a large number of notes, the load of rendering becomes high.
To confirm the performance of your Mac, please try to open MIDI file which contains few notes. If the animation does not improve, please use Mac which has high performance graphics.

(2) Q. I want to customize the window size and position.

You can customize the window size and position. Please open following file by Property List Editor.
Property List Editor is a utility application of Xcode.
If you want to customize the window size, edit "Width" and "Height".
If you want to customize the window position, add "WindowPosition", "X" and "Y".

        Height=600 (Type:String)
        Width=800 (Type:String)
        X=100 (Type:String)
        Y=200 (Type:String)

(3) Q. I want to generate video of MIDITrail. Does MIDITrail have recording function?

MIDITrail does not have a recording function now.
But you can use Quick Time Player to generate video files on macOS.

(1) Open Quick Time Player app, and choose "File" -> "New Screen Recording".
(2) Set the location where you want to save your screen recording.
(3) Click Record button. To stop recording, click the Stop Recording button in the menu bar.

Record your screen in QuickTime Player on Mac

(4) Q. Can I create playlists?

MIDITrail does not have a plyalists function now, but you can use folder play function.
Please check "(3) Folder Playback" in "4. Usage".
