MML (Music Macro Language) parser and player for Python

Project description

MML Parser and Player for Python

Python-based MML (Music Macro Language) parser and player.


pip install mmlparser


Examples, as well as simple songs written in MML, can be found in the directory mmlparser/examples, which can be played directly from a command line.

python -m mmlparser.examples.simple_player

To actually play the song, install pyrtmidi and make sure at least one MIDI output is available. The notes will be sent to the MIDI out device.

pip install rtmidi
python -m mmlparser.examples.simple_player

The code in examples/ plays musical notes with method, which relies on the blocking time.sleep() function. The async version, MMLParser.aplay(), may be used to play music concurrently with other asyncio tasks. See examples/ for some examples.

python -m mmlparser.examples.async_player
