If you stick a text file in the songs folder with the same name as a song except with a .TXT extension, then the player will display the text when the song plays.
There is also a crazy feature that allows the pro midi player to control lights via your parallel printer port via notes played in a specific MIDI channel in your sequence. If you are interested in this, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
The Pro-MIDI Player product has been available for over 15 YEARS now! The full Atari ST version is now available for FREE! However it is not being updated any longer.
You may download a the full version of the Pro MIDI Player now. The file name is 'promidi.zip', and it is a pkzip compatible archive that contains sub-directories. You will need unzip.ttp to unzip it on your Atari, or use 'pkunzip -d' on a DOS machine and copy the files over. Yes, it is registered to my friend Don Kuhl. I couldn't find a working non-registered copy anywhere and I can't make any new versions.
