Creating a MIDI file
import iomidi # A MIDI file consists of one or more MIDI tracks. # Create an empty track. track = iomidi.MIDITrack() # A MIDI track is a series of one or more events. # Create some events. pressC = iomidi.NoteOnEvent( delta=100, # time to wait after the previous event in terms of ticks channel=0, # midi channel key=60, # midi note, 60 is middle C velocity=100) # pressure of the key press releaseC = iomidi.NoteOffEvent( delta=1100, channel=0, key=60, velocity=0) # Add these events to the track. track.addEvent(pressC) track.addEvent(releaseC) # Add a meta event to denote the end of track endOfTrack = iomidi.EndOfTrackEvent(delta=1) track.addEvent(endOfTrack) # Create a MIDI structure, put the track in it. midi = iomidi.MIDI(tracks=[track]) # Write the midi structure into a file. iomidi.write('simple.mid', midi)
Loading a MIDI file
import iomidi midi = iomidi.read('simple.mid') print(midi)
