Simple demo of using MIDI to play sounds rather than lots of seperate sound files. This has the advantage that you can switch instruments easily, have more control over the notes that are played (e.g. how long they last for) and if you're feeling adventurous even implement things like pitch bending - it's all in the java API already, you just need to call the right methods :) You can do much more than in this example, it was just something I put together very quickly to show how it could be done.

UPDATE: Now added the updated MidiPlayer class used in the MidiPiano scenario.

If you just want the class rather than the whole scenario, just visit the web site link.

It says that it uses a newer version of the greenfoot api, version 2.0.0 but the newest one to download says 1.4.6... where do i download 2.0.0?


Ah, sorry, I'm running the development version of 1.5 at the moment - does it not open at all in 1.4.6?
it complains and then won't compile.


Gimme a minute and I'll reupload in 1.4.6 :)

Is it just me, or is greenfoot having problems with midi sequences right now?
