accessing MIDI file metadata


    Nov 01 2008 | 4:40 am
    I want to extract some of the metadata from a midi file, namely any text event (FF01), the copyright notice (FF02), and the track name (FF03). How would I do this in Max? Any suggestions?
    Thanks

      I've used Eric Singer's seqplayer object for this. In addition to getting your metaevents... it's one of the best ways to play midi files that i've seen in Max.
