      Can someone tell me if they’ve added MIDI support for the RT? I’m finding a lot online from 2012/13 stating that there is no MIDI support; is that still true? I’m looking for an app that will let me play sounds (i.e., piano) from a MIDI controller keyboard; any suggestions?

      Thanks,
      Elby

        The WinMM midiInOpen/midiOutOpen APIs do not seem to be exposed in RT however, there are a couple of links that you might want to look at. One guy says he can enumerate the devices, FWIW.

        But just because they’re exposed, it doesn’t mean they’re supported.
