another stupid midi sequence thread

April 3, 2007 | 10:06 pm

Just checking before I reinvent the wheel. has anyone has tried using the javax.sound.midi to create a sequence and enter in time, duration, velocity, note values and time/value/cc# values.

then use java to export the midi file.

With all the discussion going on, you’d think I could find a way to create sequences nonlinearly, and export a midi file. But all my searches did was convince me that trying to do this would end with me unhappy. there are just tons of threads about midi export not working.

I’m aware that this will be improved in the future, but with no scheduling information, I’m hesitant to sit around and wait.

I’ve done this, and it was pretty simple. I used the stuff at this site:

as a starting point for what I was doing a few months ago: analyze a midi file, add some new stuff, and save the modified file. No huge problems encountered.

It’s a great site, btw. Loads of helpful info and sample code.

perfect. just the kind of encouragement I need to make sure I’m on something akin to the correct path.
