I think it's a good idea.
And you just started writing music last week?
I've been writing music for over a year and you're probably a better composer than me already.
It would be easier to criticize and tell you what to change if either
1) You change the midi to a piano
2) You make sheets
3) I develop perfect pitch

I won't say any final words before you finish it. The beginning is very good. However, you could try creating longer lines. Now I get a feeling that the music goes a bit zig-zag, you know Smile There's little growth, a mini-climax and then it goes back to the standard level. This can be a bit hard with midi, though, but try (if you want).

Thanks for the feedback. I know exactly what your saying nerd. I might do that after the piece is finished although i does not seem worth it to me due to the horrible sound quality of midi that i am already quite disgusted with. Smile

What do you mean by "sound quality?" Do you mean soundfonts?

That's exactly what soundfonts are for.
