I'd like to see a group of functions that should allow to play single midi instruments , something like :

GENERAL :
check for midi device()
select midi device(MIDI_DEVICE_ID)

SINGLE INSTRUMENT :
set midi instrument CHANNEL,MIDI_INSTRUMENT
set midi channel volume CHANNEL,VOL
set midi channel detune CHANNEL,DET
set midi channel effect CHANNEL,EFFECT
play midi CHANNEL,FREQUENCY,DURATION
play midi CHANNEL,FREQUENCY,DURATION,VOLUME
play midi CHANNEL,FREQUENCY,DURATION,VOLUME,DETUNE
stop midi CHANNEL
stop sound on next event on CHANNEL
stop sound on next event off CHANNEL

MUSIC :
load midi sound FILENAME$,MUSIC_NUMBER
delete midi sound MUSIC_NUMBER
play midi sound MUSIC_NUMBER
stop midi sound
general midi volume VOL

here is the style
( it could help make a tracker style midi song editor )
and midi player

That is a great idea, but i would appreciate a save command too... It's very useful. I don't think DBpro will have such things from the beginning, but i feel they will be added sometime in the future

Yes there are also others commands that could be important :

EXIST=midi exist(MUSIC_NUMBER)
MIDI_INSTRUMENT=midi instrument(CHANNEL)
CHANNEL_VOLUME=midi volume(CHANNEL)
CHANNEL_DETUNE=midi detune(CHANNEL)
CHANNEL_EFFECT=midi effect(CHANNEL)

and I'm sure we can foun others usefuls command for MIDI ENVIRONMENT set ofn commands.
