PHP MIDI CLASS

Description

Class for reading, writing, analyzing, modifying, creating, downloading and playing (embedding) standard MIDI files (*.mid, *.rmi) of type 0 or 1. MIDI songs are internally represented as lists of tracks, where each track is a list of messages, and each message is a string. The message string format is the same as the one used by the commandline tools MF2T/T2MF created by Piet van Oostrum (see README.TXT).

The class provides methods to generate and manipulate MIDI data and to import and export binary midi files (SMF, *.mid), text in the MF2T/T2MF format and MIDI XML.
