in thread listen to a midi keyboard

Dear Carl, I've been working for Years with Sibelius but I changed to lilypond, because it's better, in my opinion! I don't have any problems with the syntax, although I didn't learn scheme. The only thing I'm missing is the possibility of midi input via keyboard. I just wanted to know if perl could help me with that!

    OK, i surrender, sorry.

    But did you really like something like this:

    F = #(let ((m (make-music 'ArticulationEvent 'articulation-type "flageolet"))) (set! (ly:music-property m 'tweaks) (acons 'font-size -3 (ly:music-property m 'tweaks))) m) \relative c'' { c4^\F c4_\F }

    Shit, looks like elisp ;-)

    Update: BTW, Avid killed Sibelius.

    My best regards, Karl

      Nonsense. Lilypond isn't exactly pretty, but in my experience with it (years ago), I never had to drop into Scheme to typeset ordinary music.

      But to address the OP's question, if you can get at MIDI-format data, there's MIDI to convert it into Perl data structures.

        "Lilypond isn't exactly pretty"

        I'm glad that we are d'accord.

        Regards, Karl

      Just because lilypond is programmable doesn't mean you must program it. (Same applies more-or-less to LaTeX.)
        ..."doesn't mean you must program it."

        No. You must. Else it looks inferior, sometimes.

        Applies even for LaTeX, sometimes.

        Regards, Karl
