Will there ever be a non-MIDI player for SoundHelix?

Hard to say. Using MIDI for playback is pretty ideal, because it is a standard that is supported by (almost) all platforms and is therefore widely available. A player that generates sound itself would of course be possible, but sound generation via Java is currently out-of-scope for SoundHelix (using VST plugins or something like this might be possible, though, but then again, why not remote-control a VST-based software in realtime via MIDI?). It would also be an option to provide a player which doesn't play anything but writes an arrangement in different file formats instead (MIDI file format or mod file format, for example).
