What is IDF file?

An .IDF file is a settings file that is used to define the MIDI instrument related parameters. The IDF file is referenced by the audio production programs for getting information about the MIDI instrument, including the instrument ID, channel assignments, a key map, voice names, and other MIDI related information. Since, the IDF file is supported in plain-text format, the file can be edited in a text-editor, such as the Notepad.

Programs that support IDF file

We hope we helped you solve the problem with the IDF file. If you do not know where you can download the application from our list, click on the link (which is the name of the program) - you will find more information there on the location where to download the secure setup version of the required application.

What else may cause problems?

There can be more reasons which determine that you are not able to open the IDF file (apart from the lack of the proper application installed).

First - the IDF file may be incorrectly associated with the application installed to support it. In this case, you need to change this association by yourself. To do this, right-click on the IDF file that you want to edit, click "Open with" and then select the program from the list that you have installed. After this operation, the problems with opening the IDF file should be solved.

Second - the file you want to open can simply be damaged. Then, the best solution is to find a new version of given file, or download it again from the same source as before (maybe for some reason in the previous session the download of the IDF file has not been completed and it cannot be opened properly).
