Using a mod wheel to change enharmonic. whould be a very easy thing to add. I borrowed code some ifrom mportmidi that chooses sharp or flats depending on the keysignature. This is what I wired into the midiinput. Basically if the key has flats it prefers flats. If keysignature had sharps the prefernce will be for sharps. If none is set than I believe it just uses sharps. A mod wheel up can choose enharmonically spelled flats while a mod wheel up chooses enharmonically sharp notes. This is only if the note does not exist in the keysignature. Does this sound correct?

I would have to do some studying to find a way to "doc" or embed the pop up window. This GUI will be needed for the folks who don't have a mod or pitch wheel like a midi enhanced piano. Anyway this GUI is confusing to me. I thought it was only for transposing input on the fly.
