I'm having a lot of trouble figuring out how to read a MIDI file from
java. I'm a student working on a project that involves music and
graphics, and I need info such as amplitude, velocity, attack, decay,
instrument, volume, etc. The more info pertaining to the music the
better. But at this point I will take what I can get. I just found
which looks like it will be a lot of help. However, I still haven't
figured out how to look at the actual data of any given midi file. So
what I am looking for is:
1) I want to look at the data of any (real) midi file
2) understand the data (which I think the website above might explain
3) a good source for java code that relates to/reads a midi file
Also, I want to point out that I don't want to make music. I only
want to read a music file. So, if you can help me in anyway, that
would be much appreciated. Thanks.
PS. Actual java code would be be great.
