midish(1) MIDI sequencer and filter


midish [-bhv ]


Midish is a MIDI sequencer/filter implemented as an interactive command-line interpreter (users wanting to use midish interactively may consider using the rmidish(1) utility). Here are some of its features:

  • Multiple MIDI devices handling
  • Synchronisation to external MIDI devices
  • Filtering/routing (controller mapping, keyboard splitting, ...)
  • Track recording, editing, quatisation
  • Import and export of standard MIDI files
  • Tempo and time-signature changes, user configurable metronome
  • System exclusive messages handling

The options are as follows:

Do not process $HOME/.midishrc or /etc/midishrc and stop on the first error on the standard input. Useful for scripting
Print usage information.
Print additionnal info before each line of input, useful to front-ends and for dubugging.

Once midish started, the interpreter processes the $HOME/.midishrc file (or /etc/midishrc if the later dosn't exist) and starts prompting for commands. For further information about the syntax of midish refer to the ``Midish user's manual''
