DirectMidi is an open source
library which is available to everyone who wants to make modifications
in the code.
The modifications and improvements must make use of DirectX/DirectMusic API if they are destined to enhance the main core of MIDI functions.
DirectMidi is hosted by the SourceForge.NET site where you can also find all the latest release files in order to start coding your application. I expect to use the CVS (Concurrent Versioning System) of SourceForge as soon as the number of programmers increases. Developers who are interested in cooperating in the project must see the contact section or make a request under the DirectMidi project at the SourceForge.net contributions section.
Contributors should have a good knowledge of ANSI C++, Win32 API and COM technologies but also a great sense of responsibility in order to do what was agreed. The Developer will be registered in the SourceForget.net site and will belong to the SourceForge.net project staff.
You can help to the DirectMidi user community by contributing with any original idea that can innovate the set of the library features. If you have some idea about MIDI, DirectMusic and Music that you think is important and want to contribute just tell me about your idea and I will try to add it to the list of current projects.

This section presents a list of sequences for
the MidiStation application available for downloading from this page.
The .MDS songs are made of one track and one instrument. Although they don't have as many instruments and tracks as the General MIDI files (.MID), the file structure is much easier to maintain and read than the .MID, even the recorded sound is more personal and live.
You can contribute and show other people your songs, just send me the .MDS file and I will attach it to the list.
