MIDI on Windows (Vista, perhaps) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm building sotware with MIDI capabilities (recording and playback). Should I look to Media Foundation, Direct X or just go through WINMM.DLL?

    Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

    Cheers, Mikael

  • Media Foundation in Vista doesn't have native support for MIDI (though of course you could write the appropriate components if you so desired), so I'll redirect you to the audio development forum (http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowForum.aspx?ForumID=351&SiteID=1) since there's probably someone there with that kind of experience. 

    When you post there, you might want to provide some more details about what kinds of MIDI features your application is going to provide; that might help direct you towards the right technology.
