umm - SDL_Mixer includes timidity... although it doesn't come with the
timidity sample library. timidity is a -very- nice MIDI engine...
although SDL_Mixer has no support for -external- MIDI (eg: sound cards
with built-in MIDI (roland series eg) or external MIDI systems such as
keyboards or such)
umm -> Are there any libraries for working with external MIDI? I've
haven't seen any support for windows MIDI or linux MIDI outside of
emulation in a while, so I'm curious about this... after all, I just
picked up some MIDI adapter cables for my sb-16 and am going to be getting
a keyboard :)
G'day, eh? :)
