Welcome George,

I presume you want to capture the message from an external MIDI device (i.e.
not from a MIDI file). At the moment there are some limitations on
supporting external devices in Squeak. Windows is OK, Mac should be
available soon, Linux is a problem. See this thread:


If you are on Windows and would like some more pointers on how to do the
capture, send a reply.
