MidiSwing is a little midi sequencer. It lets you play, edit and create midi files.

Here are some key features of "MidiSwing":
Play midi files. Can use Java Sound, QuickTime instruments or Sound Fonts or play on an external device. The notes being played are indicated on a keyboard.
Edit midi files. The content of the midi files is displayed on a piano roll. You can change the notes and the major controls (tempo, instruments, volume, velocity, reverb, etc).
Create your own music. You can create your music from the piano roll or record from an external keyboard.
Monitor the midi events contained in the midi file
Play quicktime video along with the music.

What's New:
Scrubbing (notes are played when one drags the scrub on the piano roll)
Quantization : notes can be automatically readjusted to the right times of the music
Core Audio/Sound Fonts are now used to play sounds when notes are clicked (and not only when the music is played)
The instrument menu shows the actual names of the instruments for every Sound Font .SF2
The java sound bank of your Java installation is used by default (if no sound bank is found, then the built-in sound bank is used)
Improvement in the editing interface (moving with arrows, permutation of tools)
Bug fix : the first notes of the file are not shortened any more when the file is re-opened.
Localization in French.

Java 5.
