Shakobox v2.0 needs only sunnYmidi external.
Shakobox (thanks to SunnYmidi) is far more responsive than Player Agent X.
Previous version, v1.0, was made by Jacque Landman-Gay from hyperactive Software and needs Quicktime, Player agent X application and Applescripts.
This version doesn't work anymore on modern Mac.
Check out Jacque's comment .
Shakobox works on top of the MacOS sunnYmidi. You can use the same technique as in the stack "TryShakobox": using the Shakobox stack as a library. You can copy-paste the script of this library in your own LiveCode project.
SunnYmidi.HCPlay plays music with the old Hypercard style. The stack script is all you need.
Here is a sample tune:
on badshot sbplay "bird tweet",50,"ae be ce be ce ae be ce be ce" wait 4 seconds with messages sbstartnote "gunshot",60,127 wait 2 seconds with messages sbstartnote "gunshot",60,127 end badshot
