[Alsaplayer-devel] effects and channels

Looking forward to the day when alsaplayer will be able to send
data out to more than two channels and apply effects, perhaps on
a per-channel basis, I thought I'd point out that midi files have
a lot of relevant information in them.  Usually there are 16
channels, occasionally 32, each with independent requests for
left-right panning, reverberation, chorusing, and so forth.
It would be a pity if alsaplayer's future architecture requires
throwing most of this information away.
