ReMIDI is a program that will play MIDI files on an Acorn RiscOS
computer, without the need for buying extra hardware.
The main features are:
- About twice the speed of TiMidity.
You can reach higher samplerates, or more polyphony with ReMIDI. On
slower machines it will mean that files that couldn't be played by
TiMidity even at 8kHz will now work.
- Desktop frontend.
ReMIDI has a frontend made with the Acorn ToolBox. You can see which
MIDI file is playing, and if your computer can keep up.
- 8/16 bit, mono/stereo output.
Obviously you'll need a 16 bit audiocard in your RiscPC to use 16 bit
output. On other machines 8 bit audio is used.
- Displays lyrics of karaoke-files (.kar)
- Playlist for 10 MIDI-files.
ReMIDI won't quit after it has played a
file, it will wait until quit is selected or a new file
- Control window for altering volumes and muting channels
The trade-off for the speed increase is a slight decrease in the sound quality
compared to TiMidity. For ReMIDI a fast processor is still recommended, and
at least 4MB is needed.
