Re: Beagle Midi Filter [Patch]

I've been reading through this and cleaning it up a bit.

Could you send me a bunch of midi files to test this with?

Also, what external program did you use for testing?

I have some ideas for speeding it up and for improving the behavior, but
I'd need test files to make any progress with that.
