Simple midi - IN, OUT & THRU demonstrated

This sample project by Stefaan Casier demonstrates some of the simpler MIDI programming techniques used in his excellent MIDI programming article here on CodeGuru. This time around, the simple concepts are explained, along with a MIDI programming FAQ for Visual Basic. The program shows how to play certain notes using the MIDI interface and analyse notes coming into the computer also.

PROJECT NAME
 	midi.vbp

PURPOSE
	Based on the reactions on my BulkDump project,
	there seems to be much demand for a simple midi project
	that demonstrates the basics. The BulkDump project
	was maybe to large to dig into. This one is small and
	easier.

ENVIRONMENT
	This is a VB5 project, which will run under Windows 9x.
	No other than basic VB-controls are used.

YOU CAN LEARN
	How to send notes to the midi OUT-port
	How to make a midi THRU connection
	How to read & analyse incoming messages from a midi keyboard
	...

COPYRIGHT
	None. I made the code myself and everybody is free
	to use it.

RUNTIME FILES
	executable is not included

CODE FILES
	midi.vbp/.vbw

	frmMidi.frm
	frmDevCap.frm

	midi.bas

ADDITIONAL FILE
	faq.htm : questions and answers + midi IN info
