MIDIPLAY(1)                OpenBSD Reference Manual                MIDIPLAY(1)

     midiplay - play MIDI files

     midiplay [-d devno] [-f file] [-l] [-m] [-t tempo] [-v] [-x] [file ...]

     The midiplay command plays MIDI files using the sequencer device.  If no
     file name is given it will play from standard input, otherwise it will
     play the named files.

     The program accepts the following options:

     -d devno    Specifies the number of the MIDI device used for output (as
                 listed by the -l flag).  The default is device 0.

     -f file     Specifies the name of the sequencer device.

     -l          List the possible devices without playing anything.

     -m          Show MIDI file meta events (copyright, lyrics, etc).

     -q          Do not play the MIDI file, just parse it.

     -t tempo    Specifies the tempo.  Default is 100.

     -v          Be verbose.  If the flag is repeated the verbosity increases.

     -x          Play a small sample sound.

     /dev/music  MIDI sequencer device


     The midiplay command first appeared in NetBSD 1.4.

     It may take a long while before playing stops when midiplay is interrupt-
     ed since the sequencer and MIDI buffers will still be emptied.
