lovemidi is a project to give LÖVE a midi i/o interface. lovemidi is based on luamidi and the newest rtmidi library.
- The current version is compatible with LÖVE 0.9.1, LÖVE 0.8.0, LÖVE 0.72 and Lua 5.1.x
- For x86 choose luamidi.dll
- For win64 choose luamidi.dll_64 and rename to luamidi.dll
The current binary is compiled with VS2012 (as LÖVE 0.9.1). Other LÖVE/Lua could bring different Visual Studios runtimes. If the library does not work, you have to install the Visual Studio 2012 Runtime.
Output (send Midi Data to Output-Port 0)
-- initialize the library local midi = require "luamidi" -- count output-ports print("Midi Output Ports: ", midi.getoutportcount() ) -- play a note on output-port 0 on channel 1 -- port, note, [vel], [channel] midi.noteOn(0, 60, 50, 1) -- deinitialize library midi.gc()
Input (receive Midi Data from Input-Port 0)
-- initialize the library local midi = require "luamidi" -- look for available input ports print("Midi Input Ports: ", midi.getinportcount()) if midi.getinportcount() > 0 then table.foreach(midi.enumerateinports(), print) print( 'Receiving on device: ', luamidi.getInPortName(0)) print() local a, b, c, d = nil while true do -- recive midi command from input-port 0 -- command, note, velocity, delta-time-to-last-event (just ignore) a,b,c,d = midi.getMessage(0) if a ~= nil then -- look for an NoteON command if a == 144 then print('Note turned ON: ', a, b, c, d) -- look for an NoteOFF command elseif a == 128 then print('Note turned OFF:', a, b, c, d) end end end end -- deinitialize library midi.gc()
For more advanced examples please look into the tests/ folder.
Just add the right luamidi.dll (for LÖVE x86) or luamidi.dll_64 (rename to luamidi.dll) (for LÖVE win64) to your project.
Still todo is to update the current makefile to create binaries for linux and macosx.
- lovemidi uses luamidi (older rtmidi, less compatibility)
- luamidi used rtmidi for cross platform midi compatibilty Linux/MacOSX/Windows
