...I'm not sure about how much information can be passed by MIDI. I'm more
used to the model in CSound, where you can pass innumerous parameters to the
instrument synthesizer. I'm thinking about using a MIDI program to generate
the music (just tone and duration...), and articulate all the other
parameters inside PD. Something simple to start, and see where it would
benefit more from additional flexibility.
