    I'm at a loss here. I just want to crop a midi song I have, but after downloading and screwing around with 3 different programs I can't get it done.

    I have a midi that is 2 minutes long. All I want to do is cut off the first 30 seconds, without ruining the rest of the song.

    Does anyone have any idea what app I can use, or if you have one and its a quick job, can you just do it for me?

    Thanks, I already have goldwave and use it frquently. However, goldwave is a digital audio editor (mp3, wav, etc). Midis aren't audio files in that respect, and so can't be edited like them.

    More info.

    What I need, and haven't been able to find, is a free midi editor that will simply allow me to crop the song without effecting the meter or tone info.

    You need a midi sequencer program to alter a midi file. it will allow you to change the data in the file, including eliminating the blank stuff at the start.

    Where did you find those? I spent a good hour on google and came up with nothing. Of course, the odds of finding anything useful when one of your search terms is 'free' aren't very high.

    Thanks.

    I had better luck searching for "midi sequencer" than "midi editor".

    i've never found anything better than audacity (recommended here by someone a long time ago).

    it's free on sourceforge and available for windows and linux.

    it's simple, fast, and really good.
