comment How can I create loopable bounces for video games?
yeah, ask whoever's writing the code for the game if it'll take seperate midi tracks for motifs and swapping styles in regenerating the background track from chord symbols. If it's coded well enough, you could have a lot more control over how things are arranged.

comment Where can I go to play an acoustic piano regularly?
True. Same for me. I could fit an upright in my microscopic living room, but, mmmm, if I'm going acoustic, it'll have to be a grand.

comment Looking for a high level Music Programming language
I'm using c++ on win32. It's not the tool, it's the project you make with it. That's a pretty loosely defined project you got so far... And let's face it. People make way better music than computers ever have. And ever will.

comment Two consecutive mdi note-on of the same pitch misbehaving
oh yeah. hmmm. so the situation is you have a chord, say C,E,G playing for a bar with an arpeggio across at say the 2nd quarter note on each qnote for the same C,E,G, right? If you think about how you'ld play that live, the arpeggio notes would need to pick up the remaining duration of the overlapped chord. So I guess if you want short overlapped notes, you'll need 2 channels for each guitar string if you don't want to bother with how it'd be played live. One channel for the string and another channel for overlaps on the same string.

comment Why do we use so complicated notation?
well, i wasn't saying that his notation was GOOD for melody, just that it could only possibly show melody. Not chords, etc.

comment Co-writing with others
Hey, don't try to wrap US up in an argument between you and your girlfriend. But, ok, I'm gonna side with her. You can swap new chords in and it'll sound like the same song. Lyrics and melody are usually what drive any pop song. She wins. And not just cuz she's a girl.

comment Why is the basis of Jazz harmony tetrads (7th chords)?
you mean "in addition to", not "instead of". And I'm pretty sure you know why - it just sounds better, eh?
