NAME    [Toc]    [Back]

     midiplay - play MIDI files

SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]

     midiplay [-d devno] [-f file] [-l] [-m] [-t tempo] [-v] [-x]
[file ...]

DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]

     The  midiplay  command  plays MIDI files using the sequencer
device.  If no
     file name is given it will play from standard input,  otherwise it will
     play the named files.

     The options are as follows:

     -d devno
             Specifies  the  number  of  the MIDI device used for
output (as listed
 by the -l flag).  The default is device 0.

     -f file
             Specifies the name of the sequencer device.

     -l      List the possible devices without playing  anything.

     -m      Show MIDI file meta events (copyright, lyrics, etc).

     -q      Do not play the MIDI file, just parse it.

     -t tempo
             Specifies the tempo.  Default is 100.

     -v      Be verbose.  If the flag is repeated  the  verbosity

     -x      Play a small sample sound.

HISTORY    [Toc]    [Back]

     The midiplay command first appeared in NetBSD 1.4.

BUGS    [Toc]    [Back]

     It  may take a long while before playing stops when midiplay
is interrupted
 since the sequencer and MIDI buffers will still  be  emptied.
