Guitar Swinger

M. Gallant 02/22/2002

This Java applet demonstrates basic usage of MIDI capability for j2se v 1.3.x and requires JavaPlugin. The notes and chords (with maximum of 6 note polyphony) are generated by sending messages to one of the default synthesizer's MidiChannel objects directly using the MidiChannel.noteOn() and related methods. The General MIDI instrument used is #25 "Steel String Guitar". The "Special Chords" are commonly used chords in modern rock music :-) The Slow Strum checkbox slowly plucks each string of the selected chord. The Instrument ComboBox provides selection of any General MIDI instrument.
