NAME

       aplaymidi - play Standard MIDI Files

SYNOPSIS

       aplaymidi -p client:port[,...] [-d delay] midifile ...

DESCRIPTION

       aplaymidi  is  a command-line utility that plays the specified MIDI file(s) to one or more
       ALSA sequencer ports.

OPTIONS

       -h, --help
              Prints a list of options.

       -V, --version
              Prints the current version.

       -l, --list
              Prints a list of possible output ports.

       -p, --port=client:port,...
              Sets the sequencer port(s) to which the events in the MIDI file(s) are sent.

              A client can be specified by its number, its name, or a prefix of its name. A  port
              is  specified  by  its  number;  for  port 0 of a client, the ":0" part of the port
              specification can be omitted.

              Multiple ports can be specified to allow playback  of  MIDI  file(s)  that  contain
              events for multiple devices (ports), as specified by "Port Number" meta events.

              For  compatibility  with  pmidi(1),  the  port  specification  is  taken  from  the
              ALSA_OUTPUT_PORTS environment variable if none is given on the command line.

       -d, --delay=seconds
              Specifies how long to wait after the end of each MIDI file, to allow the last notes
              to die away.

BUGS

       aplaymidi handles "Port Number" meta events, but not "Port Name" meta events.
