Question: Why is REAPER's MIDI editor a library (rather than being 'baked' in the main code)?

    Legacy decision from making the initial MIDI support a plug-in. Probably a bad decision, but shrug.

    Ah interesting, I wondered if it was done because it has some particular benefits. Thanks.

    initially it was like ".mid is another file type, like .wav or .ogg..." but eventually it became clear it was a lot more than that :)
