Is there such a thing as a multitasking-friendly MIDI-player that
handles standard MIDI-files? I've found several, but they either hog
the CPU, doesn't work on my Falcon040, doesn't like MiNT etc. I don't
need anything fancy, just a piece of software that can feed my
GM/GS/XG card in the background and doesn't hog or crash the system.

Hmm... Netscape couldn't find the server. I'll try again later.

I know SMF-play, it works but hogs the CPU... I've found some other
players on Hitsquad's site though, including a fairly new one that
might work.

1. MIDI file players (WAS : MOD players)

: Just wondering if anyone out there has heard of a MOD player that will
: play MODs at random, say from a given disk.  Is there such a thing?
: Also, just out of curiosity, what is everyone's favorite MOD player?
: Thanks for any info!

Greetings- Personally, I'd like something like this for MIDI files (any
format) which works as a DA or a background process. That way, I could
have real(-ish) music playing whilst word processing, backing up and so
on. The CodeHead MIDI Spy demo does some of this, but is limited to
about 15k files (I'd need 100k plus) and about 10 minutes usage. The full
version could do it, but I don't need the other facilities, such as
permanent recording. All I need is something which churns out data to the
MIDI ports. Anything like this around?
