The Dynamic MIDI Editor (DyME) is a Windows application for computer music that allows the user to apply the editing process of MIDI instruments over a musical sequence. This paper introduces DyME and tries to show that it extends the capabilities of MIDI protocol, allowing the definition of Dynamic instruments. DyME offers the real time capabilities of MIDI and dynamic control of timbre, which is actually possible only in SWSS systems. DyME writes "parameter change" commands in MIDI files, integrating editing and sequencing processes.
