How to Make MIDIs Louder

Learning how to increase the sound of a MIDI file without causing distortion requires minimal effort with the correct audio editing program. Both free and commercial programs can help you increase the audio level without destroying the audio or creating unintended artifacts. MIDI is a universal musical language that stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface and it creates a standard format for sending audio data between computers.

Step 1 Open the audio editing program and select "Import Midi Data" or an equivalent function on your program.

Step 2 Find the "Instrument List" in your program. This menu is usually listed under the main menu called "Track" or in some cases "Window."

Step 3 Change the value of the volume field for each of the tracks you would like to have an increase in volume. The value ranges from 0 to 127. The higher the number the louder the MIDI data will play back.
