dunno. but i think timestamped events are better.
maybe we should just specify some 32bit/float midi replacement ?
iE somthing that can be translated down to midi.
but still has float values.
an event consisting of uint32_t and a float
could encode all sorts of stuff.
2^24 float CC
21 octaves with 1/65536 tones. noteon noteoff with float velocity.
still got 253 eventtypes free....
all in a nice 8byte per event thingy.
of course it would be discussed to death :(
