A Sick Time With Quicktime
By Johnny Lite

Robbie et al, I produced MIDI files of freely (unquantized) played
piano solos with a sequencer.  They sound good when played back with
the sequencer.  But when converted to a Quicktime file, the rhythm
sounds weird.

There seem to be triplets where there were none, and sometimes a
loping rhythm, and/or a jumbling of notes.  I've also noticed this
in others' MIDI files posted on the Web.  Is this a quantization
problem, or a clock resolution problem with Quicktime?  Any way
to fix it?

 [ Oooh, that's a technology I know nuthin' about.  Does it sound
 [ better if the MIDI file is quantized to coarse increments?
 [ Any Quicktime experts out there to help Johnny?  -- Robbie
