Some of the exercise packages include several utility and test programs. These are all standalone scripts using Python 3 and a few additional packages as described in Python 3 Installation.
The following scripts may be browsed in the Python MIDI tools directory on the course site.
Command-line test program for identifying available MIDI ports by printing a list of the MIDI input and output ports available via python-rtmidi. There are no options, just running it will print a list of port names:
The full code follows, but may also be downloaded from list_MIDI_ports.py.
#!/usr/bin/env python3 import rtmidi midiout = rtmidi.MidiOut() midiin = rtmidi.MidiIn() print("Available output ports:") for idx, port in enumerate(midiout.get_ports()): print(" %d: %s" % (idx, port)) print("Available input ports:") for idx, port in enumerate(midiin.get_ports()): print(" %d: %s" % (idx, port))
Test program for monitoring MIDI stream, providing a GUI for connecting to a MIDI source and printing all messages.
