Question about MIDI format.
- Greetings. Hoping that by casting such a wide net I might net a few
I've been wondering for a long while now if anyone else has had the
experience of exporting MIDI music (I do it from Finale), and than
making it available for listening/downloading off of a website and
experiencing problems with QuickTime playing a nasty horrible 100% gain
white-noise transient at the beginning of playback, especially when the
link is clicked and the browser plays it inside using the Quicktime
plugin. I assume it's a buffering issue where playback begins prior to
frames actually being rendered and thus some sort of nonsense frames are
sent to the soundcard (to very very unpleasant/painful effect). It
doesn't happen every time.
I had hoped that it was primarily a Finale export problem... that some
way the MIDI it writes doesn't have instructions to pre-buffer/render or
some such and that when I upgraded from 2001 to 2007 that the problem
would be rectified, but this has not been the case. Further, I've
experienced it from MIDI that I doubt very much was generated using
Either way, I'd like to figure out a way to put some sort of leader, or
command to address this issue. I don't want people thinking that the
