Unable to import .MIDI files

  • Live Versions: 1 - 9
  • Operating System: All

Problem:

When trying to import MIDI files to Live from Finder/Explorer they can't be dragged in, instead showing the No Sign (Circle with diagonal line).

Reason: 

The MIDI file has the extension .midi. Only .mid files are supported.

Solution:

Change the extension from .midi to .mid in Finder/Explorer. Then try the import again.
