NOTE: I started working on a new version of aeltei, but then I dropped it. This means that the file does not work right now. To run aeltei, run aeltei-run and do not use (ignore the install instructions in this README). To install aeltei in its current state, copy aeltei-run to a directory in your PATH. ====== aeltei ====== aeltei is a Python 3.1 virtual multi soundfont instrument environment. It allows one to a) use a keyboard to enter and play musical notes in a curses interface, or b) use a graphics tablet or a mouse to play musical notes in a PyGame interface. These notes can either be played directly or sent to an aeltei server (with support for more than one client), which another program can then listen to. Current limitations include support for only one channel, no pitch bending, and no support for saving sounds as MIDI files. License ======= aeltei is free software under the terms of the GNU Affero General Public License version 3 (or any later version). The author of aeltei is Niels Serup, contactable at (for now, just use this address for bug reports). This is version 0.2.0 of the program. Dependencies ============ aeltei depends on the ``fluidsynth`` library, the ``mingus`` Python module, the progam ``sf2text`` from the ``awesfx`` package of programs, and the availability of a soundfont (free soundfonts come with ``fluidsynth``). When this README was written, a Python 3 version of mingus was available at There's currently no stable version. Old versions can be downloaded from and then installed from the downloaded file. To install aeltei this way, run:: $ tar xzf aeltei-*.tar.gz $ cd aeltei-*/ % python3 install Installation ============ aeltei uses Git for code management. To get the latest branch, download it from $ git clone git:// Use === Run ``aeltei --help``.
