Hi, when I went to view the examples ( http://www.asgteach.com/javafx/guitartuner_launch.htm ), I could not hear any sound. I recently created a java-based version of the old Asteroids game using the java midi classes and had to download the midi file and create and place it in a sound directory in the right location in my java directory. I know my java is up to date on my computer, so will this be an issue for creating JavaFX applications with midi? Will I have to somehow have the users download the midi file - I had to have my friend do this in order to play the game I made.
We've had some reports similar to yours where no sound is heard. We are looking into to this. I'll let you know!
What OS are you running?

Forgive me if this ends up being a double post -
My OS is both XP and Vista. I believe I had to download a midi file and place it in the correct directory. I guess java doesn't automatically include the midi file. There's a java site to get one of three differently sized midi files. I had no problem with .wav files. I can see that a solution would be to have a program installer create the directory and place the midi file, but what about applets?
