midid - Raw Midi interpreter
midid [OPTIONS] [input_file]
This manual page documents briefly the midid command. midid reads STDIN or input_file and interprets it as raw MIDI data according to the General Midi standard. The General Midi data is sent to a sound device (default), a .MID file, or to timidity(1) if you specify it. midid includes a standalone mode for timidity(1): midid will then attempt to start and configure timidity(1) itself for you.
Standard options -o seconds--timeout=seconds Turns output off after seconds of inactivity. (default: 0 - no timeout) -r,--resident Stays resident ; doesn't stop at the end of file. It works only if input_file isn't STDIN. -g,--emulate-gm Selects GM mode (default). -m,--emulate-mt Selects MT32 mode. -d device,--device=device Comma-separated list of devices to use for output. -l,--list-devices Lists devices. -h Displays a help message. Options for .MID file output device -f,--file filename Sets the .MID output filename. Default: midid.mid. -t bpm,--tempo=bpm Sets the tempo (beats/minute). Default: 120. -q tickrate,--tick-rate=tickrate Sets the number of ticks/quarter note. Default: 144. Options for timidity(1) client -s server,--server-name=server, Sets the timidity(1) server host name. Default: localhost. -p port,--port=port Sets the timidity(1) server control port. Default: 0. Specifying 0 enables the standalone mode: midid will attempt to start and configure timidity(1) itself. Options for using standalone mode with timidity(1) -B path,--timidity-bin=path Sets the timidity binary path. -A args,--timidity-args=args Specifies some extra arguments to pass to timidity(1) . Default: -EFreverb=0 -EFchorus=0 -EFresamp=1 -EFvlpf=0 -EFns=0. -M,--timidity-mono Tells timidity(1) to produce mono sound instead of stereo. -L,--timidity-low Tells timidity(1) to produce the low-q 8bit sound instead of the 16bit. -U,--timidity-uns Tells timidity(1) to produce the unsigned samples instead of the signed ones. -F rate,--timidity-freq=rate Sets the sampling rate for timidity(1). -C,--timidity-capture Enables the capturing mode: the data produced by timidity(1) gets captured by midid and forwarded to stdout. You won't hear any sound in that mode.
