This problem is reproducable in Windows 2000 and Me. My configurations :
Win 2000 : Dell Inspiron 8000 laptop
Win Me : Hp Pavillion. We have two of these machines, both exhibit the
Mac G4 running OS10.0.4, the MIDI file appears to playback correctly.
You may find the following file useful :
Load this file into Windows Media Player and play it. This is the correct way
to playback this file. Load it into Juke and play it. You will notice that
the timing "walks" around. You may need to play them back and forth a couple
of times to let your ear tune in to the difference.
Groove is less pronounced due to the nature of what's being played. The problem
is exposed in "Groove" at the point in time when the playback loops. There is
a slight, but noticable timing error. Perhaps someone who isn't a musician
wouldn't notice it.
To expose the problem in "Groove" :
1. Start Groove
2. Click "loop"
3. Listen closely at the end of the pattern when it loops.
I am writing a music transcription application in Java. We are about to go to
Beta sites, and this could be a major show stopper.
