Because when I tried a million for the customproperties I thought I
was going to have to restart my machine, Rev seemed completely locked
up. What Jackie just said about reading one property instead of all of
them, and getting timings of 503 and 238 is fair enough, it shows that
reading one customproperty can be a little bit faster than reading a
field. Even on her slower machine we're still only talking about 8.3
microseconds to read a field.

The idea was to find a way to play pre-stored MIDI. That would only
involved getting the value of the field, except for the day during
production when you stored the data, when you would have taken the
extra few milliseconds to do the storing.
My original script only had a putting part to it so that it was easy
to test on any .MID file on your drive.
