Here is a collection of
MIDI-related software written (mostly) by me during the years
gone by. The programs are sorted by the MIDI equipment they are
related to. Most of the software do not have proper documentation
(see the source code!) but the user interfaces attempt to be
self-documenting, i.e. run the program without parameters and it
will introduce itself. Some of the stuff is also unfinished skeletons.
There are also a few templates
for the Hybrid Arts' generic editor/librarian GenEdit 1.1 (Hybrid
Arts went belly up and their sequencing software family
Edit/Sync/SMPTE Track was continued by Barefoot Software but I do
not know about GenEdit). There is also a version 2.0 in
existence; these templates may or may not work with it. If anyone
finds out, please tell me too.
Most of the executables are for
the trusty old (and by now nearly defunct) Atari ST.
However, the source code is in most cases written in C (GNU C
claims to be ANSI compliant but there might be some ST specific
header files) and should be relatively easy to port since these
programs do not use the ST GUI but rely on the standard, ugly command line interpreter interface. The only problem is
the MIDI interface (and also some low-level IO routines) which
will have to be totally rewritten but these have been
encapsulated in my object library JJRlib, also downloadable here.
I am also in the (extremely slow) process of
porting the most important stuff to Windows (or DOS, depending on
the functionality needed). When/if I get something done I
will add the results here. If you do any porting please
The software is freeware but not
in the public domain. You can freely use the software (but I
would like to receive a note if you find something to be useful).
If you use any part of my code I require that you recognize my
copyright by stating it in the user interface and source code in
a similar way than yours. Click here for the license
