    Default Java Midi help

    Trying to find a good place to learn how to use javax.sound.midi package. I've looked at the API documentation but I still don't fully understand it. I would like to make music applications in which someone can use midi to make a song (just like a beat or something). Where is a good place to start learning this package?

    Maybe you like this link: JFugue - Java API for Music Programming a separate package can display the notes quite nicely; jfugue plays the notes through its midi synthesizer and you can download the complete source.

    kind regards,

    I understand this is a very old post, but the following information might be helpful to someone who chances upon this thread with the same question.

    Surprisingly, "Head First Java" (Sierra/Bates) has a section where they build a drum machine. It is the main code example in chapter 11 "exception handling". It can serve as a reasonable introduction to Midi on Java.
