The MidiChannel interface specifies many methods that are not necessarily implemented by all synthesizers. Examples:
1) setMono is superseded and not available in modern Synthesizers, which couldn't leverage the extra processing power in mono mode.
2) setProgram(int, int) may fail if the Synthesizer's soundbank does not contain the specific bank.
3) PolyPressure is only available in high-end Synthesizers
4) localControl is a function for devices with built-in keyboard
In total, this request affects the following methods:
The suggested fix is to allow setXXX methods to fail and explicitely ask the user to check the success with the corresponding getXXX method.
