Uwyn LLC a.k.a Geert Bevin has released ShowMIDI, an open sourced multi-platform application to effortlessly visualize MIDI activity, available as a FREE download.
ShowMIDI fills a void in the available MIDI monitoring solutions.
Instead of wading through logs of MIDI messages to correlate relevant ones and identify what is happening, ShowMIDI visualizes the current activity and hides what you don’t care about anymore. It provides you with a real-time glanceable view of all MIDI activity on your computer.
To use it, simply double-click the application to launch it. To pause the MIDI data stream, press the spacebar, to un-pause, press it again.
The plugin versions can be used in any DAW that supports MIDI effect plugins. Some plugin formats, like VST3, might filter out certain MIDI messages and not present a fully accurate view.
ShowMIDI ships with a handful of themes, more will be added in the future.
You can edit, create and save them yourself in the application. Feel free to submit your themes to me.
- MIDI ports
- Program change
- Note on/off
- Channel pressure
- Polyphonic pressure
- Continuous control change

ShowMIDI is available to PC, Mac, Linux and iOS (VST2, VST3, AU, AUv3, CLAP and LV2).
