MidiRunner is a basic program that allows users to create MIDI files and play other audio file types. Although the program may have some useful features, its disastrous interface undermines any potential assets.

MidiRunner seems like a straightforward program. Users can play a variety of MIDI instruments using an external keyboard, the computer keyboard, or a virtual keyboard. That part worked well enough, although the virtual keyboard is frustratingly tiny. The program separates the keyboard, playlist, and control panel into three toolbar-like modules, which were cumbersome to navigate and littered with tiny buttons and text. Although we were able to perform some basic tasks, such as plucking out tunes on the keyboard, playing MP3 files that were stored on our computer, the rest of the program remained somewhat enigmatic. Could we, for example, record MIDI files? We didn't see any indication that we could, and the program has no Help file. We were also decidedly underwhelmed by the program's functionality: when it launched we were greeted with the Windows hourglass, which only went away when we closed the Tip of the Day module, and the program crashed at least once. Overall, we were not impressed with MidiRunner. there are much better programs available for dealing with MIDIs and other audio files.

MidiRunner has a 30-day trial period. It installs a desktop icon without asking and leaves a folder behind upon removal. We do not recommend this program.
