MIDI-Based Segments

A MIDI-based segment can be created at run time by loading a standard MIDI (.mid) file. In addition, MIDI-based segment (.sgt) files can be created in DirectMusic Producer, often by importing MIDI files to which the author might add tempo, key, and band changes, as well as loop points. Unlike a style-based segment, a MIDI-based segment has no patterns and no command track. Instead, it has a sequence track that contains MIDI notes and other commands.
