Midi Player software?

I know the Amiga is not exactly known for it's midi playback and certainly isn't something I think was used that often for games (at all?).


I've been making a midi interface to for my Amiga and was wondering if anyone knows of a reasonable Midi player for the Miggy?


I've had a look on Aminet but the few I have found are mostly quite basic, playing one song and then stopping until reloaded with the next one. I'd love to find a program that at least has some form of playlist functionality, if anyone knows of one?

I'm not sure if up to your task but I have Deluxe Music disks and I'm sure it supported MIDI.

I'm sure I can, er, find a copy in my collection and see


Was thinking more along the lines of Hippoplayer or Eagleplayer etc but will give it a go and report back

Does GMPLAY use external midi devices? I saw it on Aminet but assumed it was creating the audio itself?

GMPLAY uses Software Musical Instruments, with GMPlay no Hardware is needed to play MIDI files.
