: I would have announced the new version of PLAYBACK.PRG right now.
: Version 1.0 is already available on several archives (look for: PLAYBACK.ZOO).
: Currently beta test version 1.04 is spread around to beta testers and
: in two weeks I will spread version 1.1 around.
: PLAYBACK is not a DA or background program, but can play standard MIDIFILES,
: via the atari ST MIDI out port.
... Stuff about PLAYBACK deleted ...
: So please, two more weeks...

Well, I've already got Playback, and it's pretty smart- easily the best
MIDI player I've seen- but what I really want is something which'll
play stuff while I go and word process/ draw pictures/ play tetris :)
or whatever at the same time. Someone mailed me and said they'd got
an old DA called "MYMSP" which can play MIDI files (though not at
random) does anyone else know whether this is any good? Is it already
on the net anywhere? He offered (very kindly) to upload it to atari.
archive if I couldn't find it elsewhere, but it'd be faster if it
was already available somewhere. (I couldn't find it on archie.) TIA...
