Here is the archived thread:

A working MIDI setup (MIDI keyboard connected to the computer) and a DOS program that uses MIDI input.  I can't share Score, it's commercial software that's still being sold.  But the Voyetra sequencer is available for free:

Obviously this program follows a completely different strategy for reading MIDI data.  For a sequencer low latency and accurate timing are essential.  For notation software this obviously isn't an issue.  I guess Score is taking a more lazy approach.

Let me add my apologies:  Obviously I made a mistake and sent my initial post twice as well.

I'm aware that there has been conflict between Stas and other contributors (or a single maintainer?) in the past which caused him to resign as a maintainer.  I don't know the background of this, but he certainly is knowing the internals of Dosemu very well.  I would find it pretty sad if Stas' commitment wasn't honored and the bug fix would get lost because of personal resentments.  I would really like to promote Dosemu and see more people adopting it.
