DirectMusic actually has a fair amount of "low level" control -- it's just 
not the main emphasis of the app.  You can certainly have your app work with 
individual MIDI messages, time-stamped or "immediate".  Wrt reacting to MIDI 
events, there is a DirectMusicTool interface that "listens" for (specified) 
MIDI events (streamed/timestamped) or otherwise) and executes your (custom) 

Check out the DirectX SDK docs wrt DirectMusicTools.
