I'm trying to simply capture the keys pressed on a musical keyboard (using a USB-MIDI device) and display as a number from 0-127. Seems simple enough.
this is not a simple task. The MIDI Throughput program works great if I want to play the keyboard's sound thru my computer, and so far its the closest thing to what I need.
But its going to take a large amount of time for me to wrap my head around the whole kit and kaboodle.
Apparently I need to learn the whole history of MIDI development, how the devices send the data packets, how the Windows API functions work, and write my own callback functions to the winmm.dll. Where's an intern when you need one!?!
I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
