NAME
       arecordmidi - record Standard MIDI Files

SYNOPSIS
       arecordmidi -p client:port[,...] [options] midifile

DESCRIPTION
       arecordmidi  is	a command-line utility that records a Standard MIDI File from one or more
       ALSA sequencer ports.

       To stop recording, press Ctrl+C.

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

       -V,--version
	      Prints the current version.

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

       -p,--port=client:port,...
	      Sets the sequencer port(s) from which events are recorded.

	      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 spec-
	      ification can be omitted.

       -b,--bpm=beats
	      Sets the musical tempo of the MIDI file, in beats per minute.  The default value is
	      120 BPM.

       -f,--fps=frames
	      Sets the SMPTE resolution, in frames per second.	Possible values are 24, 25, 29.97
	      (for 30 drop-frame), and 30.

       -t,--ticks=ticks
	      Sets the resolution of timestamps (ticks) in the MIDI file, in ticks per beat (when
	      using  musical  tempo)  or  ticks per frame (when using SMPTE timing).  The default
	      value is 384 ticks/beat or 40 ticks/frame, respectively.

       -s,--split-channels
	      Specifies that the data for each MIDI channel should be written to a separate track
	      in the MIDI file.  This will result in a "format 1" file.  Otherwise, when there is
	      only one track, arecordmidi will generate a "format 0" file.

       -m,--metronome=client:port
	      Plays a metronome signal on the specified sequencer port.

	      Metronome sounds are played on channel 10, MIDI notes 33 & 34 (GM2/GS/XG	metronome
	      standard notes), with velocity 100 and duration 1.

       -i,--timesig=numerator:denominator
	      Sets the time signature for the MIDI file and metronome.

	      The time signature is specified as usual with two numbers, representing the numera-
	      tor and denominator of the time signature as it would be notated.  The  denominator
	      must  be a power of two. Both numbers should be separated by a colon. The time sig-
	      nature is 4:4 by default.
