comment Default connection of notes in sheet music
What instrument are you playing? How to articulate the phrasing depends very much on which instrument you are talking about.

comment How to input quarter tones in Garageband
Garageband will not be able to interpret quarter-tone MIDI signals coming from your keyboard. But Garageband can simply record the audio output from the keyboard, through an external audio-to-USB interface. So if the quarter-tones are so important to you, why not do that?

comment Why are bass guitars so much shorter than a double bass?
Bass guitar strings can be constructed with a solid steel core, another steel wire wrapped around that, and a third steel wire wrapped around that. This produces a tremendously thick and dense string that can be of a short scale length yet tuned to a steady low pitch.

comment Why are bass guitars so much shorter than a double bass?
The strings on an electric bass guitar are very thick, meaning they can be tuned to a low pitch and be playable. They don't have to be double the scale length. Do you understand the technology behind wound steel guitar strings?

comment Why can't we play what people speak?
I think you should delete your last line, "What is the difference between people singing and people speaking?". That is an entirely different question, and should be posted as a separate question.

comment Is there any support for microtonality and temperaments in (or beyond) the MIDI specification?
Here's a tip. The freeware sforzando sample player by Plogue, a standalone virtual instrument and plugin in all common formats for Windows and Mac OS X, supports playback using Scala tables. plogue.com/products/sforzando

The Scala creation software is available for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. huygens-fokker.org/scala/downloads.html. However most people who use Scala files just rely on the presets available with the particular virtual instrument. They never go near the creation software.
