Note that for this sequencer to provide stable timing, three conditions have to be met: 1. System.currentTimeMillis() has to do what its name says: provide the system time in milliseconds. Some lecacy operating systems (Windows & co.) provide a timer resolution of only 10, 30 or 60 ms. For information on what you can expect on your operating system, see the measurements of YIP Chi Lap [Beta] 2. A synthesizer or MIDI port implementation that responds immediately. Testing with the synthesizer of the Sun implementation resulted in horrible timing. Timing with the hardware synthesizer of a SB Life!, accessed via ALSA, was very good. Working with WireProvider should be ok, too (assuming you manage to meet the first point) 3. Small scheduling latencies. On the GNU/Linux system I tested, even heavy file system traffic didn't lead to noticeable effects on the timing. However, usage of the X server almost always led to delays. This is due to the fact that the X server normally runs with very high scheduling priority, stealing other processes CPU time. Moving a window killed the timing. Even a running 'top' was noticeable. For testing with this sequencer, I recommend to use a recent version of MidiPlayer from the Java Sound Examples.
