Hello Christophe,

Thanks a lot! This is what I need. My purpose is to generate chords and I need interactive responses straight in R. I can output midi event lists as csv-files and convert them with a nice midicsv-program in linux- or OSX-console. Then it is easy to convert midi files to notes with Finale or other music notation program.
