I know my series 40 phone is capable of playing more than 4
simultaneous voices, but there seems to be some limitation because more
complex MIDIs with certain combinations of instruments can cause a MIDI
to not play at all. I've tried it on my friend's (brand new) series 40
phone -- exact same problem.
It's not that the byte size of the MIDI is too big, either. Sometimes
a larger file size will play fine and a smaller file size won't.
Has anyone determined which instruments can *consistently* be played by
these phones (say, MIDIs with more than 4 voices at a time) so that it
does not cause a problem? Or, does anybody know which instruments
(program change messages) tend to be problematic?
It's way too much trouble to test every single MIDI ... so would like
some guideline if possible.
