Hardwarewise you'd want to talk to Adriano Angelillis. He has some very
interesting ideas and would be happy for help.

I think Daniel Padilla also once expressed interest in this area, but
probably never found the time to tackle code. Still, he could give you
some pointers, I reckon.

And then there's the occasional mention by folks who think that this
would be neat to have (me included) but who are clumsy wid dem codes.

Maybe you'd want to start with a smaller objective to explore
NewtonScript and MIDI. How about a MIDI-karaoke player for .kar-files?
That's fun and cool stuff (make the Newton the ultimate party app!),
and a whole order less complex. For inspiration check
http://www.vanbasco.com , best .kar player I've seen.
