I am trying to send midi note messages to a DirectMusic performance, without
any luck.

I have successfully inumerated the ports on the machine, and even set up the
IDirectMusicThrough8 interface between an input port attached to a midi

try to send a note on message to the performance, I hear nothing. The send
message function returns success; so I don't know what the problem could be.
