ROMP gets support for MIDI files

ROSA Media Player, (ROMP), is a media player from ROSA Laboratory (ROSA Company), a Russian Linux software solutions provider responsible for ROSA Linux distributions. It is the default media player on the KDE edition of ROSA Desktop, a distribution derived from Mandriva.

It is one of the better media players available on any distribution, with a feature that other applications in its category do not have. That feature, is desktop capture or recording, which gives users the ability to capture their desktop activities – in Webm format. You may read a short article about that feature at ROMP: Media player with built-in desktop recorder.

ROSA Media Player 1.5, the latest update, has added another feature – support for MIDI files. MIDI, acronym for Musical Instrument Digital interface, is a protocol which “enables a single player to sound as though they are playing two or more instruments simultaneously.”

ROMP 1.5 has not hit ROSA’s stable repos yet, but if you are running ROSA Marathon 2012, you can update ROMP by adding an additional repo using one of the following command:

urpmi.addmedia juliette_personal http://abf.rosalinux.ru/downloads/juliette_personal/repository/rosa2012lts/i586/main/release (use this i586 system).

urpmi.addmedia juliette_personal http://abf.rosalinux.ru/downloads/juliette_personal/repository/rosa2012lts/x86_64/main/release (use this for x86_64 system).
