- Everything a student and teacher could ever need!

High Quality MIDI File Player:

MIDIculous is the most feature-rich music learning software for students and teachers. At its core it is a high quality MIDI File Player where you can use the stock General MIDI soundest or you can use AUv3 apps already installed on your iPad.

Learning Tool for Musicians:

If you upgrade to the Pro Expansion, you will gain the ability to load virtually any MIDI, Audio, and video file to be able to change the pitch, key, transpose, and loop in order to learn from the various different media sources. We recommend trying to find the MIDI file as this is the only file format that allows you to view the actual note data using our beautiful virtual instruments.

Proprietary LMV and LMS Files:

LMV and LMS respectively stands for Live-MIDI-VIDO and Live-MIDI-Sync. Out of the box, MIDIculous can play these files for free. These are proprietary files that can contain a combination of MIDI, Audio, and/or video at the same time. So picture this super learning file that contains multi-channel MIDI and a video file all in one, where a student can see the video AND see the notes of the MIDI in sync at the same time, such that when the user wants to change the pitch, loop, or slow down the video to learn, all of the comments are precisely in sync with one another. A teacher who purchases the Pro version will be able to make this proprietary file and send this file to all of their students and the student can view this file using the FREE player. This makes for the most amazing supplemental tool and resource for their students.

Online Learning Display:

With the most beautifully designed virtual instruments (Bass, Guitar, Drums, Keyboard, Organ) a teacher can display or project their screen through avenues such as Zoom, Ecamm, and OBS for a virtual seminar or session with their student. Allowing the student to see the animated colorization of instruments allows for a better teaching and learning experience.

No sound.

Just purchased the pro feature and I tried to open some standard modi files and there’s no sound.

Developer Response ,

Please check and make sure none of the Channels are Muted or Soloed. We went back and checked the app and this will happen, if you accidentally soloed a channel that is not used.

Far exceeded my expectations!

Amazing app so far…so many features that are amazing on the free app, that I can’t wait to see what comes as add ons in the way of IAP… been playing with it all day and LOVING the fact that I can open Strummer (by 4pockets) SunRiser, additive Pro, Addsynth, LayR, GeoShred, SunVox, SynthMaster Player, SynthMaster 1 and the latest SynthMaster 2, I can also open Pure synth Pro…and the list goes on and on!!

I love that I can open (Strummer) and then use the GUITAR FRET BOARD in Midiculous!! Or DigiStix2 (by 4pockets) and use the drum set in Midiulous! It’s ridiculous!!

***one request… can you add string bends while using the fret board… I know it must be tricky (or you would have added it) but is their a way to use the (bend of the string) to act like the midi pitch bend mod wheel? It’s not a deal breaker, or even a blind spot, but it would be a nice added feature to play the fret board with bends.
Again, I know it has to be a tricky bit of code, otherwise I know it would have been thought of and added.

Thanks Guys! I love this app!
