Bleeper Music Maker (revision 139)

Posted on 2008-08-22 at 02:34 in Music, Programs by Robbi-985.

This release halves the time the program takes to initialize MIDI output (and when changing what channel to send the data on) – on some soundcards, this is quite noticable. You also now get a little status message at the bottom of the “MIDI Output Settings” window when things like that are happening. Also, program should no longer crash when you enable MIDI input or MIDI output on computers which don’t have a MIDI in/out device (thanks to Ed for pointing out that bug to me).

(Usual download place)

The next release should be the best in… well, possibly the best ever. The reason? It should have a built-in MIDI file player. Yep! So you can play MIDI files directly through your PC speaker, straight from the program (without needing a soundcard or MIDI device). I’ve been putting off coding this for a long time, but 140 is a nice number. So “stay tuned”, as they say, people.

    When I tried using the program, it gives off this error:

    Class not registered.
    You need to have the following file to be installed in your machine. MSSTDFMT.DLL.

    I can see the DLL file in the folder tho and renaming the file doesnt work. Any idea how to solve this?

    Yep, I put the info in the info.txt file.
    You need to copy that file into your system32 directory (usually c:\windows\system32). Then click Start, Run. Type…
    regsvr32 msstdfmt.dll
    …and press enter.

    I hope this helps!

    If I made an installer for this, it would do it itself, but you only need to do it yourself once, and an installer would make the download much bigger. (Also, not everyone needs to do it.) I might make a kind of ‘helper’ program to do it, some time.
