"The author knows his
stuff... he has hard industry experience."
"It is the only book
I know that really explains Windows MIDI ... I recommend it!"
"... the organization
is excellent, proceeding in a natural progression from introductory material
to ToolKit basics to useful examples and extensions."
This book shows you how to build world-class MIDI programs that can play music using computer sound cards or external keyboard instruments, teach music theory and technique, add music to games and allow musicians to record, edit, play and print compositions.
Maximum MIDI gives programmers two ways to add MIDI to their programs. A flexible toolkit of C and C++ routines makes developing Windows 95 MIDI programs a breeze, and rock-solid algorithms and tons of field-tested source code allow advanced users to quickly "roll their own"--on any platform. Over a dozen example programs show how it's done.
Unique in its focus on MIDI, this book explores each subject thoroughly--nothing is sidestepped or skimmed over. Any programmer--hobbyist or professional--who is interested in the exciting world of MIDI programming should read this book.
Contains complete source code of the Maximum MIDI Programmer's ToolKit for Windows 95 and all of the book's example programs.From the back cover.
