Synthfont1 MIDI file help

Postby jonfun68 » Sat Sep 02, 2017 3:51 pm


I have just downloaded and installed Synthfont 1. it all seems to be working well. However, my problem is something I've not encountered before.
Operating system is Windows 7 (home edition) and the latest version of Synthfont 1 :)

I have downloaded 3 MIDI files from the internet (

The first one loads in to Synthfont without any problems. However the other 2 files can't be found.

I'll explain a little bit more clearly (I hope! :) )

I created a folder on my desktop called 'midi files'
I downloaded each file, and copied them to the folder on the desktop (Midi files0
When I click on 'open MIDI or arrangement' in Synthfont 1, it only lists one of the files. Now this happens if I change file type to 'all files', 'MIDI and arrangement files' or 'MIDI type files'.
However, if I open the folder (MIDI files) on the desktop, all 3 files are in the folder, and I can play them with the media player.
Exactly the same thing happened with Sekaiju - a MIDI file editing program.

However, I was able to use Musescore (notation program) to open all three files from the folder on the desktop folder. I was able to find all three files in the folder with no problem. :?

So, am I going mad, maybe just a gray moment... or missing something obvious?

Thanks in advance

Have you Windows set to hide extensions of known files? If so, try to change the setting to see what extension each file has.
