I would like to run a midi file with quarter tones ( like 60.5) in pd.
I tried cyclone/seq and mrpeach/midifile. Both externals seem to round up quarter tones to halftones. So 60.5 becomes 61 etc..
Maybe someone has a solution for that!?!? That would be awesome.
How to play midi files with microtonal pitches?
@Hymnosiac It could be a dead end. Michael Edwards programmed an object for reading a midi file to a qlist....... http://michael-edwards.org/noti/?tag=pure-data and it looks as though the way to get it is through his Slippery Chicken ........ https://michael-edwards.org/sc/robodoc/cm_lsp.html ........ maybe
He mentions different scales and microtonal.
But it looks as though [midifile] is expecting pitch bend messages from a .mid file...... ctrl 100, 101, 6 to be sent on through [ctlout]
Here is a test...... c_twice.mid ... (IE11 will not get this)
And explanation...... http://robertinventor.com/software/tunesmithy/test_sound_card.htm
Thanks a lot, David.
I´ll check slippery chicken and I´ll take another look at (midifile) again.
Qlist seems to be a good option; I am generating scores with notes.pd and LilyPond. Lilypond generates the midifile I´d like to run in PD.
