Dent du Midi is a drag-and-drop application that takes standard MIDI files and generates AIFF containers for each track which contains note data. These AIFF container files are suitable for dropping into Apple's GarageBand application for use as loops or entire tracks. In simple terms, this application allows you to convert MIDI files into GarageBand files.

The name is a bit of a play on words. Dent du Midi is a 10,686 foot (3257 meter) mountain in the southwest of Switzerland in the west Alps. The name is French and is pronounced something like "don doo midi" which I thought sounded like "don't do MIDI" which is why I thought it more...

What's New

Version 1.0: Increased maximum output length of output track data from 1MB to 4MB.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2.8 (not yet tested on any other version), GarageBand 1.0 (part of iLife '04.)

Great app, worked nice under Panther, now, with Tiger it doesn't create any output files. I tried with several midi-files, and all the settings...

You have to read the instructions to make sense of the steps to producing the required AIF files, but once you get the hang of it, it is one of the most useful utilities available for GarageBand. With the Plethora of good MIDI files on the Internet this gives garageband users access to thousands of tracks to work on.

Dowload this program NOW!

Probably one of the most useful utilities around! It's simple, quick and effective.

Thank you to the developer, especially for this: (from the Dent du Midi read me file)

7. I like Dent du Midi and I want to send you some money.

Please, send that money to the American Cancer Society or your local church where it will help people in real need. No, I don't have cancer, but it has touched my family's lives and I think it would be great if I could contribute some of my talent to help find a cure. Since I'm no micro-biologist, this is my way of contributing to that effort. If you send them money, thank you!

If only there were more people like him in this world.

The issues mentioned on version 0.2 should all be fixed now with 0.3. If you are still having problems, send me one or two files that are not working for you (find my e-mail address on my site). I will try them out and see what I can do. -Bery

Some Band in the Box midi files seem to get locked up when imported to Garageband. My system is OSX 10.3

Correct, outputs the files the same as before, but when I drag them into GarageBand it gives me the system sound that it couldn't do something for every separate track file and nothing appears in the tracks for the song.

Something wrong with this version. :-(

A great little app that allows me to convert any MIDI file I find on the net to something GarageBand can read and play back, I'm sure there are other programs that can too.

I've been having some fun with this, and it work's great, thanks for making it, keep on going. :-)
