    Default Manually edit volume of MIDI file in Java

    Hey all, I'm trying to find a way to manually change the volume (velocity) of a midi file before playback, i.e. directly in the code. This is the code I'm using to play my midi files:

    import javax.sound.midi.*;

    /** Plays a midi file provided on command line */
    public class MidiPlayer {
    public static void main(String args[]) {
    try {
    // From file
    Sequence sequence = MidiSystem.getSequence(new File("C:\\Sounds\\twinkleaccomp.mid"));

    // Create a sequencer for the sequence
    Sequencer sequencer = MidiSystem.getSequencer();;

    // Start playing
    } catch (IOException e) {
    } catch (MidiUnavailableException e) {
    } catch (InvalidMidiDataException e) {

    How can I edit my code so that I can easily change the midi file's volume before I run and compile the code?

    Thank you, any help will be appreciated! :)

    The standard API doesn't seem to allow for the controls one would expect from a player. I would like for a pure Java player and examine its API.
