I was wondering how to reverse a midi file while trying to make a midi for my quest, and I'm not sure how. After a while of searching I did find THIS, but I tried it on the latest version of Anvil Studio (which I have) and I'm not able to reverse the midi.

I was wondering if anyone knows how to reverse a midi in anvil studio or any other programs?

I would need it to be free, because I can't afford to waste money on something like this, it would also be good if it worked in anvil studio, because i already have that installed.

Thanks for your time!

My old version of Cakewalk Pro Audio 9 has a "retrograde" option which does this - the problem, however, comes with MIDIs that use event controls to change a track's instrument patch. This means that, if there's an instrument change halfway through the track normally, it'll only happen halfway through the track backwards, so the instrument selections would be inverted as well. Furthermore, some people choose to use instrument patch events at the beginning of their MIDIs rather than simply use the track properties, so you may end up with a file that has no instruments set (or all defaulted to piano) until it ends.

You can do it pretty easy on FL Studio, but you have to do it one channel at a time.
