While playing around with the MIDIContol API on a 6170, I'm hitting some strange quirks: using short midi events on MIDI channel 9 (drum sounds, sending a note on event) only plays 44 drum sounds, then silence. I have tried to send note off events (even though the MIDI spec says you do not need to), but that makes no difference.
Has anyone else experienced that too? Any workarounds or tips?
Personally I hope it's something I'm doing wrong. Otherwise a phone with the API implemented correctly would be more than welcome. I've been working on this for over a year now, last year I bought the 6600, then found it had a "known issue": it did not support the midi control api, but the emulator did.
As an aside I'd be intersted to know if this is Nokia or Symbian's "known issue". I went for a job interview at Symbian a few years back and was none too impressed by the interviewer who was in charge of the Java port to Symbian's then new OS.
Oh well enough ranting for today. I'll go and watch some tv instead.
