Your quest for MIDI management ends here.

It's safe to say Sound Quest knows a thing or two about MIDI. Not only did they invent the idea of using audio plug-in formats to virtualize hardware synthesizers, but their MIDI Quest product, first released in 1989, is the oldest actively supported software dedicated to maximizing your MIDI hardware.

The latest version, MIDI Quest 10, provides a set of fully integrated tools that not only display, edit, and organize the settings of your instrument, but maintains the relationships between the various data types in your instrument too. Easily drag and drop patches between banks to create new banks of sounds. Making a new bank of combis or multis is also simple as MIDI Quest copies over the selected performances along with all the sounds needed for them to work properly.

Not an expert on synth programming but want some new sounds for your instrument? MIDI Quest has your back again, with uncomplicated click-and-go tools that do all the thinking for you. The easy-to-comprehend interface uses the entire computer screen, so you can tweak every parameter in your instrument without spending all your creative time searching through tons of submenus.

Supporting more than 650 synthesizers, drum machines, effects, and various MIDI devices, MIDI Quest is the kind of customizable, universal editor and librarian you can trust to keep your MIDI hardware in line.
