I guess my question is: Does anyone here have that capability?

Media Player MIDI files might be great SA addition, but since most of the
other stuff (a chord maker, chord progression maker, recorder, and live
instrument player with an onscreen keyboard and special perussion/effects
player) will be using QT, then the platform must have it aboard anyway.

So, yes, can anyone here develop a QuickNotes type of external to work with
Rev on a Windows platform?
