       wildmidi	- example player for libWildMidi



       wildmidi	 [-bhlvwnst]  [-c config-file] [-d audiodev] [-m volume-level]
       [-o wav-file] [-f frequency-Hz(MUS)] [-r	sample-rate] [-g  convert-xmi-
       type] midifile ...

       This  is	 a  demonstration program to show the capabilities of libWild-

       midifile	can be a MIDI type file	in the HMI, HMP, MIDI, MUS or XMI for-
       mats  and is processed by libWildMidi and the resulting audio is	output
       by the player.

       You can have more than one midifile on the command  line	 and  wildmidi
       will  pass them to libWildMidi for processing, one after	the other. You
       can also	use wildcards, for example: wildmidi *.mid

       -b | --reverb
	      Turns on an 8 point reverb engine	that adds depth	to  the	 final

       -c config-file |	--config config-file
	      Uses  the	 configuration	file  stated by	config-file instead of

       -d audiodev | --device=audiodev
	      Send the audio to	audiodev instead of the	default. ALSA defaults
	      to  the system "default" while OSS defaults to "/dev/dsp". Other
	      environments do not support this option.

       -h | --help
	      Displays command line options.

       -f | --frequency
	      Use frequency F Hz for playback (MUS).

       -g | --convert
	      Convert XMI: 0 - No Conversion (default)
			   1 - MT32 to GM
			   2 - MT32 to GS

       -l | --log_vol
	      Some MIDI	files have been	recorded on hardware that uses a  vol-
	      ume  curve,  making  them	sound really badly mixed on other MIDI
	      devices. Use this	option to use volume curves.

       -m volume-level | --mastervol=volume-level
	      Set the overall volume level to volume-level. The	minimum	 is  0
	      and the maximum is 127, with the default being 100.

       -o wav-file | --wavout=wav-file
	      Records the audio	in wav format to wav-file.

       -r sndrate | --rate=sndrate
	      Set the audio output rate	to sndrate. The	default	rate is	32072.

       -n | --roundtempo
	      Round tempo to nearest whole number.

       -s | --skipsilentstart
	      Skips any	silence	at the start of	playback.

       -v | --version
	      Display version and copyright information.

       -x | --tomidi
	      Convert a	MUS or an XMI file to midi and save to file.

       These  options  are not designed	for general use. Instead these options
       are designed to make it easier to listen	to specific sound samples.

       Note: These options are not displayed by	-h | --help

       -k N | --test_bank=N
	      Set the test bank	to N. Range is 0 to 127.

       -p N | --test_patch=N
	      Set the test patch to N. Range is	0 to 127.

       -t | --test_midi
	      Plays the	built in test midi which plays all 127 notes.

       The player accepts limited user	input  that  allows  some  interaction
       while playing midi files.

       +      Turns the	master volume up.

       -      Turns the	master volume down.

       e      Turns enhanced resampling	on and off.

       l      Turns volume curves on and off.

       r      Turns the	final mix reverb on and	off.

       n      Play the next midi on the	command	line.

       m      Save the currently playing file to a midi	file. NOTE: This saves
	      to the current directory.

       p      Pause the	playback. Note:	since the audio	is  buffered  it  will
	      stop when	the audio buffer is empty.

       .      Seek  forward 1 second. Note: Clears active midi events and will
	      only play	midi events from after the new position.

       ,      Seek backwards 1 second. Note: Clears  active  midi  events  and
	      will only	play midi events from after the	new position.
