Desfonema Sequencer is a tracker-inspired MIDI sequencer. It uses a pattern oriented design, with n tracks by pattern. It offers a piano roll editor for tracks, and a tabbed track interface for patterns. It features convenient keyboard shortcuts, a virtual keyboard, step and live editing, MIDI input (ALSA), and a text-based file format that is easy to edit manually or merge and better suited for version systems like Subversion.
Scenic is a free software suite for streaming audio, video, and MIDI between live events. It was created at the Society for Arts and Technology (SAT) to give artists a powerful tool for telepresence in live arts contexts, and new media installations. The streaming is done over RTP with the GStreamer multimedia framework. Users can also choose low-bandwidth or high-quality codecs, depending on what is available on their system. It offers up to as many audio channels as your audio device supports. It consists of a desktop application and several command-line utilities: scenic (a Desktop application to stream audio, video, and MIDI over RTP); milhouse (streams audio and video over RTP); midistream (streams MIDI notes and controls over RTP); dc-ctl (controls connected DC IEEE 1394 cameras); firereset (resets an IEEE 1394 bus to help in case of problems); and jack-info (prints information about running JACK servers).
mididings is a MIDI router and processor for ALSA and JACK MIDI. It supports filtering and modifying MIDI events in many different ways, and allows for seamless switching between different patches even while playing. mididings is scriptable and extensible in Python, while the core MIDI processing code is written in C++ in order to allow low latencies and realtime usage.
Midi Music Flash Cards is a music sight-reading trainer. It generates flashcards dynamically according to "modes" as specified through a handful of menus across the top. In auto-mode it continuously generates flashcards, with controllable time intervals between MIDI playback and a further time interval between displaying written feedback about the key and notes.
Schnolgo is a musical composition system. It has a number of unique features, including a way of handling polyrhythmic timing which provides a flexibility one cannot easily achieve with traditional sequencing programs or sound programming environments. Currently, Schnolgo is in the form of a Python package, and its main output format for compositions written in it is MIDI.
Fripp is a music composition environment that uses a spreadsheet metaphor for entering music and manipulating it with built-in and user-created functions. It supports MIDI playback and recording, and displays music in common notation. Scores can be exported to Mup format for high quality printing. The core program is written in Python, and the user interface is implemented using the wxPython toolkit.
OrganDesigner is a graphical tool for editing and configuring virtual pipe organs. OrganDesigner can read SoundFont files and can both read and write organ description files for use by the virtual organ MIDI player GENPO. OrganDesigner users can copy, move, and delete stops, both within and between divisions; use the Stops Editor to change a stop's name, MIDI bank, program, and velocity; use the Divisions Editor to make new divisions, change a division's name and MIDI channel, change the order of divisions, and delete divisions; use the Couplers Editor to add, modify, and delete couplers; use the Pistons Editor to add, modify, and delete combinations, and to store and recall the stops set for each piston.
PyChoReLib is a Python library which transforms lists of notenames to a chordname. The system uses built-in music theory knowledge to make it easy and quick to add support for new chord types. Its features include interval recognition, scale recognition, and demo chord recognition using real-time input from MIDI devices.
Pymprovisator is a program for jazz musicians. Jazz music is based on improvisation and this program is intended to help musicians to improvise. The user sets the song parameters and the program generates a MIDI file with an adequate accompaniment. It emulates the program Band in a Box from PG Music. You can think of it as the electronic version of the books/CD from Jamey Aebersold.
