NAME
midirecord -- record midi files
SYNOPSIS
midirecord [-aDfhoqV] [-B buffersize] [-c channels] [-d devices] [-f sequencerdev] [-n notesperbeat] [-R roundbeats] [-r raw_output] [-T tempo] [-t time] file
DESCRIPTION
The midirecord program converts the sequencer events read on sequencerdev to the named MIDI SMF output. If the file name is -, output will go to the standard output. By default, timing for events begins with the first event. The -o flag may be used to start timing events at the process start up.
OPTIONS
The following options are available: -a Append to the specified file, rather than overwriting. -B buffersize Set the sequencer device read buffer size to buffersize. The default value is 32768 bytes. -c channels Sets the filter list of channels to channels, which is a comma separated list of channels to filter in. -D Enable debug log. -d devices Sets the filter list of devices to devices, which is a comma separated list of devices to filter in. -f sequencerdev Sets the sequencer device to use to sequencerdev. The default is /dev/music. -h Print a help message. -n notesperbeat Sets the MIDI notes (clocks) per beat to notesperbeat. -o Start the relative timer at process start up instead of at the first event. -q Be quiet. -R roundbeats Round timings to roundbeats of a note. Output will always be aligned to this many beats. -r raw_output Create the raw output of the sequencer device in raw_output. -T tempo Set the tempo for the recording to tempo. -t time Sets the maximum amount of time to record. Format is [hh:]mm:ss[.dddddd]. -V Be verbose.
ENVIRONMENT
