Basically, I need help with the MIDI file format. I''ve looked on google at the basic hits when searching for the MIDI file format, but I''m not understanding it. If someone could post a link or show me in the direction of a tutorial for MIDI programming, I''d be enthralled. Let''s say I have a sequence of notes: B-A-D-D-A-D; and I want to make a MIDI file of a standard grand piano playing those as quarter notes, and then ending, how would I go about that. Is what I am thinking possible? I want to make a program that will transform notes (as letters, text input) to a MIDI file. Also, any links to sound programming sites in C++ would be great. Thank you all!

Thanks, but I don''t need the file format. I already have that and don''t understand it.

I''d like to know how to playback streams of user-inputted notes, and then save them to a MIDI file.

Thanks again.
