No, I heard about MSC for the first time now. MIDI is limited, has many  
drawbacks, MIDI on modern computers add additional drawbacks, so instead  
of thinking to program for all kinds of usage, it IMO is important to get  
rid of the issues MIDI does cause on PCs (*NIX and what ever OS else). I'm  
accustomed to get hard real-time for hardware MIDI. I found a way to get  
this for Linux on my machine, but this is possible, because Linux coders  
focused music.
