Playing musical notes in Director

Playing musical notes in Director

Post by Eric Iverso » Mon, 08 Jan 1996 04:00:00

Is there any way to play musical notes in Director in the same way that
one would do it in Hypercard?  (i.e. play harpsichord d5e...)  I'm
trying to write a music application, and this is the one sticking point.  
I've looked for XCMD's to do this, and the closest I found was one that
played MOD files.  I suppose an alternative would be to do it with
Quicktime Musical Instruments, but I know very little about this.  Help!

On an alternate note, if there is a Director Movie that already imports
and plays MOD files, I'd gladly pay $$$ for it.


1. ADVICE - How to draw musical notes?`

Can anyone give me some advice on the best way to draw musical notes on a
staff like a music notation program would.
Are bitmaps the best?
Should I go with GDI?
I am leaning towards GDI because they can be resizable, but I am afraid that
they will be much more complex than bitmaps?

Can anyone please share their thoughts with me?
