Some self praise because I implemented something even a lot of professional MIDI products don't have - Tap tempo / MIDI tempo sync, while recording, plus a demonstration app that allows you to tap tempo with your computer's keyboard.

It was quite a bit more difficult than I anticipated, because wrangling with different devices requires experimentation, and you don't want to clog the limited MIDI bus with never ending sync messages, but on the other hand if you send the minimum needed for timing (2 in theory) a lot of devices won't set their tempo from it immediately so it needs some finagling to get right. It's actually kind of complicated, logicwise. It took me the better part of the day to write the tap tempo demo as well, because figuring out the spec and the quirks took a lot longer than expected

Also god bless MIDI-OX. I should look it up again and see if i can pay for it. It's worth good money.

Anyway, my Midi dll now supports MIDI features even some pro tools don't have. Almost. I have actually another day or so of work on it, getting another half of it implemented using high resolution timers so it can send as well as receive them.

Another thing that's cool about it, is it's transparent. It converts the MIDI realtime sync into MIDI tempo change messages - usually only present in files, not over the wire - so a recorded sequence can automatically have the appropriate tempo changes in it for saving. And also my API supports receiving tempo change messages as well so it respects them even though they only come from files. It makes playing files easier.

It's kind of a convoluted contraption of sorts, but then MIDI is sort of kludgy and a well designed MIDI widget will handle the weird bits gracefully.

Anyway, yay me. This is a bear, but I'm almost out of the woods. Smile | :)
