APLAYMIDI(1)		    General Commands Manual		  APLAYMIDI(1)

NAME
       aplaymidi - play	Standard MIDI Files

SYNOPSIS
       aplaymidi -p client:port[,...] [-d delay] midifile ...

DESCRIPTION
       aplaymidi  is  a	 command-line  utility	that  plays the	specified MIDI
       file(s) to one or more ALSA sequencer ports.

OPTIONS
       -h, --help
	      Prints a list of options.

       -V, --version
	      Prints the current version.

       -l, --list
	      Prints a list of possible	output ports.

       -p, --port=client:port,...
	      Sets the sequencer port(s) to  which  the	 events	 in  the  MIDI
	      file(s) are sent.

	      A	 client	 can be	specified by its number, its name, or a	prefix
	      of its name. A port is specified by its number; for port 0 of  a
	      client, the ":0" part of the port	specification can be omitted.

	      Multiple	ports  can  be	specified  to  allow  playback of MIDI
	      file(s) that contain events for  multiple	 devices  (ports),  as
	      specified	by "Port Number" meta events.

	      For compatibility	with pmidi(1), the port	specification is taken
	      from the ALSA_OUTPUT_PORTS environment variable if none is given
	      on the command line.

       -d, --delay=seconds
	      Specifies	 how  long to wait after the end of each MIDI file, to
	      allow the	last notes to die away.

BUGS
       aplaymidi handles "Port Number" meta events, but	not "Port  Name"  meta
       events.
