Q. could/should there be a special MIDI node? If so what would it look like / what kind of events would it produce / how would we use it? 

H0: there would be 52 boolean eventOuts representing different piano keys, and a url for the MIDI file. 
H1: 104 time eventOuts, 2 for each key representing pressed/released time
