Midi files to frequency presets?

May 12, 2011 | 3:29 am

Hello,

I’m trying to create a patch where I’m able to load a midi file (.mid) and silently play through the rhythmic data at different tempos while visually retaining the original midi note numbers as reference. These silent midi notes in the melody will then bang a specific frequency preset as output that is unrelated to the midi number. Can anyone think of a simple way to do this? I’m basically working with a piece of music that I need to transpose to a drastically different tuning system and melodic structure while maintaining the exact rhythm. I have tried a bunch of different approaches and have several working pieces that don’t quite fit together yet. I can share examples of what I’m working on if it will help explain the intention more clearly. Thanks very much!

Meara.
