    There's no such thing as a 'best soft ever' - if there were, it would be the only one on the market and you wuldn't have to ask the question in the first place.

    That said, there's a ton of stuff around for handling midi files - it rather depends on what youmean by 'edit' (a much abused and widely mis-used term these days) as to which ones are worth a look at.

    If you're willing to spend a little bit I would recommend Cakewalk Sonar, it's great little program that I've used for a few years. Though it's not free. :(

    That's more powerful than even what I need. Trust me, 99% of it doesn't deal with ringtones. ;)

    With all due respect, you're talking through the back of your head. Actually, thinking about it, with no respect whatsoever, because this is ridiculous advice.

    It certainly isn't free - neither is it a 'little bit' of money. Sonar costs around $480 for the cheap Studio edition and even more for the Producer version.

    Don't you think that's just a little over the top to edit a midi file to ringtone length?

    I like WinJammer shareware for small editing needs. It does overwrite the track names, but that's a relatively minor inconvenience.

    Ahem, actually I got it for $60 on ebay. :D

    Besides you can download the evaluation version for free to see if you like it.

    .. .and just how often does a deal like that turn up?

    As I recall, the evaluation version doesn't allow you to save the files. Not much use in that, is there? Even so, if you like it, you have to pay for it - and it's still a hell of a lot of money for the purpose intended.

    Even your $60 is a lot of money for this purpose, it can be done (legally) for free, so why spend a penny?

    I'm not knocking Sonar - I use it myself - but it's not the answer to this particular question.

    When advice is sought and given, some understanding of the economics and complexities involved is required and a practical solution should be offered. There's no point in promoting your personal favourite software to someone who would have no need for its feature set.

    I agree that Sonar would be a little overkill for just editing midi files, but the original question was:

    And I consider Sonar to be one of the top midi sequencing packages available.

    Even though $60 is a lot when a basic program is avalible for free, it is possible that our friend may be wanting some of Sonar's powerful capabilities.

    MrLopez, if you're just interesting in a free, basic midi sequencing program you might want to look here: http://www.anvilstudio.com
