Midi support added to flash / actionscript

I was hunting for a way to send midi messages into flash/actionscript for some live animation hijinks. I would use my midi controller to trigger animations using commercially available sequencing software to record / retrigger once I had the sequence right. I mean, building all of that functionality into flash would be fun, but I’m only going to be alive another 30-50 years, so wheel reuse is sometimes preferrable.

Unfortunately I’ve not found any native support. Just when I was considering creating a midi translator, somebody beat me to the punch. It’s a java application that takes the midi messages and connects them into flash.
