pmidi: If a tree falls in the woods

Apparently today is the day for sound players. This one, unfortunately, I don’t have much to show for.

midi is my No. 2 weak point after networking. That’s pmidi above, and as far as I can tell, it seems to be working.

Of course, I hear no sound coming out, which says to me that — for the umpteenth time — I have failed to correctly configure something.

I even tried to fiddle with my sound settings, but nothing interesting seemed to happen.

I only feel a little bad about that though, because there’s nothing much to show with pmidi. It can show a list of available ports, you can specify a port and specify a delay and … that’s all.

But other than that, there’s nothing graphical to show. No progress bar, no obvious controls, no interface aside from the files you list in the command.

So if there’s nothing to show, and if there’s nothing to hear, I have only one question: If pmidi falls in the woods and no one is there, is it working? 😕

    Hahah, nice point at the end 😛
    Same with me. Followed the instructions at pmidi’s website and couldn’t get it to play anything.
    Still looking for ways to play MIDI files – instructions on the Arch Wiki didn`t seem to work too.
