comment Is there any midi software that can display in real-time the notes I play next to the “real” score?
update - sorry, but I've taken out standard notation. But it still displays what you're playing on top of the piano roll notation live. notes to play are colored according to scale so you can easily see octaves, 5ths, etc. Your recording is displayed as a black bar on top of the notation.

comment Learning while recovering from tendonitis
I'm not sure the mods are gonna let this question live cuz it's pretty subjective. And I don't even have any recommendations for what to learn. And I don't even know what a dobro IS. But if that tendonitis came about from your practice, you should definitely get the stress OUT of your practice. Piano players always need to watch for "playing with stress". The emphasis should be to eliminate stress as much as possible and not brute force it EVER. Also, absolute rest is needed for recovery usually. Good luck.

comment Software to get started on programmable music
from your question wording, I'm guessing you're familiar with programming. Are you already familiar with how to compose music? If not, that'll be your biggest learning curve probably. if so, download ableton live and watch aaaaaall those tutorial videos. That should get you started. You've picked a pretty giant sized task :) Might take the rest of your life.

comment What's the purpose of the key signature information in a MIDI file?
i don't think so. it might be a manufacturer specific parameter buried in a sysex or something. it's not part of the realtime midi protocol, just stored in midi files.

comment What notation systems exist for indicating rhymes, alliteration and cadence in rap lyrics?
ok, ok. Two notations in wide use. And I've seen many musicians who use piano roll notation to learn songs and communicate. I'm working on a way to use it for performance as well pianocheetah.com/tutorial/img/screen2.png basically take piano roll and use all of standard notation's good ideas in this format. Eh, we're way off topic.
