My little MIDI library is small, and yet in many ways its more advanced than other offerings despite starting out simple.

It's fast. It's small. It's easy to code against (easier than a lot of stuff I've seen). It has a whole lot of features.

So what's the catch? I feel like I want to dive into other people's code to see what they have that I don't.

So far from the little I've seen the stuff just looks more complicated than it needs to be - with midi "pipelines" and things like that.

I don't see the point in features like that. I like K.I.S.S., but even without that I don't know what someone could accomplish that they couldn't with my lib about as easily.

So I'm proud of myself, but a little worried. I've wrapped all of the Windows MIDI API except for patch caching, and my file editing and querying API is pretty good, but it's all very simple, and small. It was almost too easy to code that actual protocol end of it.

I feel like I'm missing something big.

The only complicated part was interfacing with the MIDI hardware.
