Playing notes with MIDI -- midiOutShortMsg(...) in winmm.dll

P: n/a
I am attempting to build a piece of software which will replicate a guitar's
notes. The major problem I have is sending the message to the midi output
device which has the correct instrument and note to play. The midi people
want like 50 bucks for a reference, and as this will be a personal use type
application, I can't see spending the money on it. If anyone has a nice
enumerated list of the ID's for the instruments and notes/chords, that would
be wonderful. I am writing this in Visual Basic(.net), but an example or
two in C or C++ or even Java or some other language which uses the windows
API would be great.

Thanks In Advance,
--cx.

Thanks for the link. I had heard mention of it on DotNet Rocks,
but I did never find it when I went looking....
