GStreamer MusicXML2MIDI Release 0.1
Mike @ 3:55 pm

A few months back I started writing a GStreamer element for converting MusicXML into MIDI, the eventual goal of this from my perspective is to allow for score editing inside Jokosher (without Jokosher having to deal with all the pain of the MIDI format itself). It’s far from being perfect and still has trouble with more complicated files, but hopefully it’ll be of use to some people in its current state so I’m releasing version 0.1.

Example Uses

  • Synthesising MusicXML directly:
    gst-launch filesrc location=song.xml ! musicxml2midi ! wildmidi ! audioconvert ! autoaudiosink
  • Generating a MIDI file:
    gst-launch filesrc location=song.xml ! musicxml2midi ! filesink location=song.mid
  • Generating an OGG Vorbis file:
    gst-launch filesrc location=song.xml ! musicxml2midi ! wildmidi ! audioconvert ! vorbisenc ! oggmux ! filesink location=song.ogg

Running the OGG Vorbis pipeline on the twovoices.xml test file produces the following output:

Download

MusicXML2MIDI 0.1 – Source Package
MusicXML2MIDI 0.1 – Debian/Ubuntu Package for 32-bit systems
MusicXML2MIDI 0.1 – Debian/Ubuntu Package for 64-bit systems

Alternatively there’s a PPA available: https://launchpad.net/~gst-musicxml2midi/+archive/ppa/

Contribute

All the source code is stored in a git repository: http://github.com/Elleo/gst-musicxml2midi. If you’d like to help out simply clone the repository and start hacking away, once you’re happy with your changes you can propose your branch for merging with my own.
