    Tags: MaxMSP, PD, PD Vanilla, Pure Data, qlist, slippery-chicken   

    With the demise of the extended version of Pure Data, we’ve lost the seq object for reading/playing MIDI files. I know there are alternative libraries out there but I would like to play a MIDI file in PD for teaching purposes. Sequencing in PD vanilla is really done with the qlist object, which I love, though I do find it a little frustrating that PD can’t handle reading that most standard of files, the MIDI file. On a more positive note, qlist is also available in Max so it’s a really handy object/format in both environments.

    Anyway, I’ve just added a new function (midi2qlist) to slippery chicken that converts from a MIDI file to a qlist text file format. I’ve tried it with a few different MIDI files and it seems to be working fine, but it wouldn’t hurt if other people took a poke. You can get the code via (update-app-src …) or from the svn-latest tag on the svn server.

    When creating rthm-seq-palettes you can add empty bars with the requisite number of rests but the easiest thing to do is simply leave them blank:

    (5 ((1 ((((3 4) { 7 (28/3) - 28/3 x 6 - })
             ((2 4) (q) g e (e)) ()
             ((5 8)))))))

    Note that two empty bars are created there: the first by a simple empty list: (), the second by a change of time signature followed by no rhythms ((5 8))
