So, did anyone write a MIDI file player yet? I have connected a Serdaco S2P synth to my CPC (using the Willy interface), it accepts MIDI commands, but I don't have any software to play music with it :(

Could be a great title for a game.  ;) :)

LambdaMikel wrote just the code I needed, then I could easily get it running on Willy+S2P as well  :D

I have only recently started playing with Midi, I had some ideas for CPC but then ultimately I think the CPC is best as "a sound producer", it has a unique sound when compared to other Midi instruments.  If you listen to some of the awesome CPC musics such as the playcity demo songs hopefully you will agree.

Perhaps something like this from Michael Wessel

Could evolve into an up to 9 channel MIDI playback with CPC Sound Patches (perhaps with AMDRUM support too, but... the CPC sound is the unique bit from the CPC so not a high priority for digital samples).  Then a CPC can be added with an awesome sound to a set of Midi devices to actually play some cool music.

The AYs in the CPC really have a fantastic sound

Have you heard anything as good as that from a SID before?  (Although there are some awesome SID songs), they are both uniquely awesome!

Sure, I have some Roland SC, SB devices and I love their sound comming from the 80s. Now, any computer with a little Serial/MIDI interface can do the same. On the video, all come from the external of the CPC that "only" use its keyboard to RUN that. ;)

Could this player be modified to work with the ElectroMusic research interface?

I've had WACCI issue 26 (November 1988) scanned recently and it contains a comparative review of the four MIDI packages available for the CPC at that time. It should be available to download from the Wiki in a week or so.

Don't know that interface, but if it has a MIDI compatible serial interface, it should be not problem to use the software for it too. Of course, it need to be adapted for the SIO of the ElectroMusic

I finally tested my lambdadpeak midi with a korg keyboard. I got interesting results.  Record and playback worked fine but recording only the notes and not instrument changes, I guess a limitation of the sample recording software.  Or perhaps more likely even playback of sample songs only played the selected instrument, perhaps as the korg wavestatr is not a general midi device.  Playback of the sample songs however had a different oddity, a long delay before the korg kicked in and it did stop playing once the cpc stopped the song.

Sorry I haven't found my xg50db card yet.

With the midi I did wonder though.  Would anyone want a keyboard mania style game on cpc?  If songs were in a new cpc song format that let me match the midi notes against the frequency then I could detect a hit vs near miss etc.  Does anyone have a cpc music file in which it would be easy to adapt for such without having to hand-create another format with worst music by me?
