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.
Thanks much. Josh
