MidiEditor is a free software providing an interface to edit, record, and play Midi data.
The editor is able to open existing Midi files and modify their content. New files can be created and the user can enter his own composition by either recording Midi data from a connected Midi device (e.g., a digital piano or a keyboard) or by manually creating new notes and other Midi events. The recorded data can be easily quantified and edited afterwards using MidiEditor.
MidiEditor was developed by Markus Schwenk. It is entirely written in C++ (Qt) and is available for the platforms Linux and Windows.

Simply excellent, esp. as an Editor for Piano MIDI files :-) Wishlist: - some marks on the piano keyboard band on the left for the highest and lowest available key on a 88-key-instrument (highest: C8, lowest: A0) - a zoom-preset utility, so you don't have to zoom in and out individually each time you launch MidiEditor - a possibility to choose custom colors for the MIDI events (orange is ok as a default color, but *any* color gets annoying eventually ;-) )
Lot of work is in this new Version. Very good work! One of the best Midi editors i've ever seen.
Very good on Ubuntu 12.4.
No problem downloading Windows binary. Simple to use, no frills. Great for quick edits or composition. I expect I will use it extensively with commercial software that does not provide as simple an interface.
Unable to rate it, because unable to get it. As release 2.0.0 is qualified as "stable", please provide a tarball with source files (not every people are familiar with SVN/CVS/Bazaar/Git/...). The website states "To download the sourcecode please visit the project page.", which redirects to the SF site for the project. And the only available download options available on the "Download" section is for a Windows EXE or a DEB (for Debian-like only Linux distros) package. If an RPM is not yet available, at least source files should be available. Or if you intend not make them available, please state it.
