On this page you will find latest pre-release versions of Midi Translator for OS X.

Feature Set

This beta version 1.6.3 is an updated version of 1.6.2 for OS X. Most notably, it features Keystroke as Incoming Action and is therefore approaching the 1.7 feature set.

Time Limit

All beta versions are time limited. They run for 90 days from initial release of that particular beta version. The expiration date is shown each time you start the beta version.
Note: this 90-day time-out is not a trial time-out.

Trial vs. Full Version

The trial version only runs for 20 minutes at a time. During that trial time, you can work with the program using all features, but after 20 minutes it quits. You can restart it as often as you want. To unlock, please purchase Bome’s Midi Translator Pro here.

Users who have purchased a license of Midi Translator Pro can download the full version.
Note: the full version will not run if you don’t have a valid license key!
