     Hello All,
I'm trying to have dynamics affect the generated MIDI without success. The MWE below produces the MIDI shown even further below. The dynamic markings result in channel volume control messages being injected into the MIDI but always with the value of 0x64, regardless of the dynamic. I've read everything I could find about MIDI and dynamics and I've tried including the "articulate" script but it's always the same. I've looked at the .../scm/midi.scm file without finding anything that looks out of order. Any suggestions?

I think you will find that the dynamics affect the Velocity of the individual 
notes, rather than the volume control messages.

I don't have an opinion one way or another as to whether that is the right 
approach, but that is the implemented approach.

This was previously discussed here :


Thanks. I had read while researching that it didn't affect note velocity so I 
wasn't even looking at them, but was then confused by the non changing volume 
control messages. All clear now, except for the spurious messages but they do 
no harm.
