DESCRIPTION


midicopy is used to copy part of a MIDI file to another MIDI file. You can select a
particular time interval, particular channels, and particular tracks or any combinations.
If one or both of the run time parameters -from or -to are included, the program returns
the playing time in seconds of the output file. Midicopy was developed by Seymour Shlien
from the midifilelib distribution available from http://www.harmony-
central.com/MIDI/midifilelib.tar.gz.

OPTIONS


-ver prints version number and then exits

-trks n1,n2, etc
Selects the tracks to be copied where the track numbers start from 1. If more than
one track is specified, they should be separated by commas. You should always copy
track 1 since by convention it contains information pertinent to all the other
tracks. By default all tracks are copied unless you specify particular tracks using
this run time parameter.

-xtrks n1,n2, etc
Lists the tracks to exclude from copying. All other tracks are copied. This option
does not work in combination with -trks.

-chns n
Like above, it specifies the MIDI channels to be copied. By default all channels
are copied. Channel numbers also start from 1.

-from n
The program will copy all MIDI commands starting from midi pulse number n. By
default it will start from time zero or the beginning of the MIDI file.

-to n Stops copying all events after midi pulse number n. By default the file is copied
to the end.

-frombeat n
The program will copy all MIDI commands starting from quarter beat number n. By
default it will start from time zero or the beginning of the MIDI file.

-tobeat n
Stops copying all events after quarter beat number n. By default the file is copied
to the end.

-fromsec n
The program will copy all MIDI commands starting from time n in seconds.

-tosec n
Stops copying all events after time n in seconds. These two options (-fromsec and
-tosec) do not work accurately if the MIDI file has more than one tempo command.
Only the first one is used for converting seconds into MIDI pulse units. It is
therefore preferable to use the -from and -to options.

-replace trk,loc,val
This option should be used alone. Midicopy will copy the entire file verbatim
except it will replace a byte by val, where the byte is located in the specified
track (trk) and specified position (loc). Commonly this function is used for
changing a particular MIDI program number (instrument) associated with a channel.
You need to know the byte count in the track of that parameter in order to use this
function,

-tempo quarter notes/minute
All tempo indications in the midi file will be replaced with the above value.

-speed factor
All tempo indications in the midi file will be multiplied with this factor. Values
greater than 1.0 will speed up the music while lower values slow the music. The
factor is a floating point value.

-drumfocus drum-code excluded_drum_velocities
The selected drum line (specified by the drum-code pitch value) is highlighted by
reducing the loudness of all other drum lines to the excluded_drum_velocities
value. The drum-code value must be in the range of 35 to 81 inclusive.

-mutenodrum [level]
All channels which are not 9 (drum channel) are attenuated to the given level. If
level is not specified, it is assumed to be zero.

-setdrumloudness n m
where n is between 35 to 81 inclusive and m is the loudness between 0 and 127. The
loudness of all instances of drum n are changed to m.

EXAMPLE


midicopy.exe -trks 1,5 -from 2669 -to 8634 uzicko.mid fragment.mid Midicopy will copy
tracks 1 and 5 starting from midi pulse position 2669 and ending at MIDI pulse position
8634.
