Simple Python library to generate music in a hacker friendly way.

Project Description

# Introduction

Pyknon is a simple music library for Python hackers. With Pyknon you
can generate Midi files quickly and reason about musical

Pyknon works with Python 2.7 and 3.2.

# Usage

Pyknon is very simple to use, here's a basic example to create 4 notes
and save into a MIDI file::

from pyknon.genmidi import Midi
from import NoteSeq

notes1 = NoteSeq("D4 F#8 A Bb4")
midi = Midi(1, tempo=90)
midi.seq_notes(notes1, track=0)

See the documentation for more details.

# Documentation

Pyknon needs better documentation. Meanwhile you can download [this free chapter]( from [Music for Geeks and Nerds]( that explains how to use Pyknon.

# License

This library is released under a MIT license. See the [LICENSE](LICENSE) file for
more details.

Pyknon's MIDI module is heavily based on Mark Conway Wirt's MIDIUtil.
