    Midi

    What's the easiest way to make my Windows app receive MIDI messages from a connected device? Are there any APIs that simplify this task?

    So can anyone shed any further light on this? What is this MCI prefix? Is that a standard part of the Windows SDK, or an external API? Can this function help me with what I wan to do?

    I've created a virtual synth, and at the moment it uses the QWERTY keys as input - I want to make it properly MIDI-controllable.

    I've got it sorted now. I've deciphered the routines in the mmsystem.h file. It works beautifully...
