MIDI is only primitive if your soundcard is a piece of trash. MIDI is like sheet music: sheet music is as good as your orchestra/voice/whatever, and MIDI is as good as your soundcard/synthesizer/whatever.

And there's no denying, you can store a whole lot of music on a hard-drive full of MIDI files.

The only music I don't like MIDI for is music that really has to have the lyrics, such as Weird Al's stuff, or a capella music. For that, there's WAV format. I have about 6 Gigs of WAV on my hard drive, consisting of the songs I like from various albums. I have way more music in MIDI format, but it takes up a lot less space and sounds just as good.

The formats I *don't* like are the lossy formats, such as MP3. I like my music to sound good, and lossy formats don't deliver.

Of course, there's always that .pl format... mutters something incoherent about polyphonic fractals


{my$c;$ x=sub{++$c}}map{$ \.=$_->()}map{my$a=$_->[1]; sub{$a++ }}sort{_($a->[0 ])<=>_( $b->[0])}map{my@x=(& $x( ),$ _) ;\ @x} split //, "rPcr t lhuJnhea eretk.as o";print;sub _{ord(shift)*($=-++$^H)%(42-ord("\r"))};
