wildmidi - example player for libWildMidi
wildmidi [-behlv] [-c config-file] [-d device] [-m volume-level] [-o wav-file] midifile ...
This is a demonstration program to show the capabilities of libWildMidi.
midifile is processed by libWildMidi and the resulting audio is output by the player.
You can have more than one midifile on the command line and wildmidi will pass them to libWildMidi for processing, one after the other. You
can also use wildcards, for example: wildmidi *.mid
-b | --reverb
Turns on an 8 point reverb engine that adds depth to the final mix.
-c config-file | --config_file config-file
Uses the configuration file stated by config-file instead of /etc/wildmidi.cfg
-d device | --auddev=device
Send the audio to device instead of the default. ALSA defaults to the system "default" while OSS defaults to "/dev/dsp". Win32 envi-
ronments ignore this option.
-e | --enhanced_resample
Switches to a gauss based resampling algorithm which can improve the shape of the sound.
-h | --help
Displays command line options
-l | --log_vol
Some MIDI files have been recorded on hardware that uses a volume curve, making them sound really badly mixed on other MIDI devices.
Use this option to use volume curves.
-m volume-level | --master_volume=volume-level
Set the overall volume level to volume-level. The minimum is 0 and the maximum is 127, with the default being 100.
-o wav-file | --wavout=wav-file
Records the audio in wav format to wav-file.
-r sndrate | --rate=sndrate
Set the audio output rate to sndrate. The default rate is 32072.
-v | --version

-k N | --test_bank=N
Set the test bank to N. Range is 0 to 127.
-p N | --test_patch=N
Set the test patch to N. Range is 0 to 127.
-t | --test_midi
Plays the built in test midi which plays all 127 notes.
The player accepts limited user input that allows some interaction while playing midi files.
+ Turns the master volume up.
- Turns the master volume down.
e Turns enhanced resampling on and off.
l Turns volume curves on and off.
r Turns the final mix reverb on and off.
n Play the next midi on the command line.
p Pause the playback. Note: since the audio is buffered it will stop when the audio buffer is empty.
. Seek forward 1 second. Note: Clears active midi events and will only play midi events from after the new position.
, Seek backwards 1 second. Note: Clears active midi events and will only play midi events from after the new position.
