MIDI player

Rondo has been designed from the ground up to be simple, uncluttered and easy to use. Rondo has many innovative features including a vertical piano roll with live scrolling and a pull down playhead with a piano that will play along with the music.

In Rondo, notes play as they scroll under the movable playhead and because this piano is horizontal, it is easy to see what notes are about to play! This feature, combined with per column track filtering and the ability to slow down a piece of music makes Rondo an ideal practice environment for students and hobbyist alike. Other features include a full set of looping controls and an easy and intuitive method of viewing different types of midi data.

    # minor update to fix an audio incompatability with OS X 10.6 'Snow Leopard'.
    # The '+' and '-' keys to adjust the rate now work with extended keyboards.
    # Known Issue - There is a minor visual glitch on the window, where the title bar and toolbar have a slightly different color tone. Possibly due to changes in gamma between OS X version 10.5 and 10.6.

    * The font size in the Library views can be changed via the Preferences dialog.
    * The Library playlist view now has a contextual menu with a number of commands such as finding a file on disk, creating a new playlist from the selection, selecting duplicates or 'lost' files etc.
    * A playlist selection can now be copied and pasted into another application such as Text Edit or a word processor.
    * Playlists can now be printed. The font size used for printing is the same as for display. The contextual menu mentioned above can also show where the page breaks will be.
    * When importing files into the library, if duplicates are detected a dialog will appear asking how they should be handled. They can be ignored, added as usual, or the files location can be updated in the database. This last method makes it easy to relocate files after moving Rondo to a new computer or hard drive. See the help file for more info.
    * Exported files can now be made more General MIDI compatible by removing bank change and system Exclusive events. This may make GS and XG files play better in Rondo.
    * Fixed a bug in the Song Info sheet that gave incorrect counts for some meta events.

    Channel colors can now be modified via a new preferences panel. Some other colors such as staff background etc. can also be altered. A Show Song Info dialog in the file menu shows information on the number of events and their types. This can be filtered by track to see what sort of events are in each track. Several new menu items have been added including Select All, Select None, Select Section, Go to Section, Play Section and a Recent Items menu that will display your last 10 songs. Different meta and system message types can also now be displayed in their own column.

    The filter panel has been upgraded with separate audio and column filtering. Each column of midi data starts out being linked to the audio and will display the current audio filter settings. Individual columns can however be 'unlinked' from the audio and display its midi data filtered differently. This will be very useful for users who wish to follow the music by playing along. Simply mute the particular track you wish to play using the audio filters and solo a column using its column filter. To help with this there is a new solo column and the original play column can now be toggled between play and mute using a contextual menu.

    Finally, a Check for new version preference can be set to automatically check for new versions of Rondo. Registered users can also opt to be informed of new preview and beta versions of Rondo when they become available.
