Midi File - Odd play

Postby NTO » Tue Jul 18, 2017 2:13 pm

This is curious. I have not set out to harm a cat! :lol:

My midi file editor says this file resolution is extreme, converts it, and only 'pretends' to be playing it.

My DAW plays it w/o incident at 4 bars long.
Bidule plays what I think is all the content in indicated 4 bars, then extended period of silence, indicating the file is 100 bars long.

I was seeing a very large delta time after the last event in the track and was starting to wonder if there was some never before seen bug with the variable length reading code. It seems that some apps don't look for EOT and simply take the last event as the EOT?

Seems you're right on the way some apps parse the content.
Learning experience for me. I had this vision of 'reading through' the blank space, but I guess this an instance of variable time compression's value! :roll:
Missing some item understanding, but did eventually get to 391.7166015625 quarter notes of time :lol:
