BYOB: Build Your Own Binary
--features=system: Enable playback through MIDI out devices registered on the system.
--features=system-jack: Same with
systembut uses the Jack backend.
--features=winrt: Same with
systemexcept it uses the WinRT backend. Note that currently WinRT does not recognize OmniMidi or Virtual Midi Synth so I wouldn't recommend it.
--features=fluid: Enable fluidlite as a built-in MIDI synthesizer (requires libfluidlite and pkg-config to be present on your system).
--features=fluid-bundled: Enable fluidlite as a built-in MIDI synthesizer; use the bundled library. This feature is enabled by default.
You need an up to date rust toolchain installed.
On *NIX systems, you also need alsa development libraries:
# Debian and derivatives apt install libasound2-dev # RHEL and derivatives dnf install alsa-lib-devel
To use the jack backend, you also need jack development libraries:
# Debian and derivatives apt install libjack-jackd2-dev # RHEL and derivatives dnf install jack-audio-connection-kit-devel
You can install from crates.io:
cargo install plmidi --features system
Or, you can clone it:
# to install after a git clone git clone https://github.com/insomnimus/plmidi cd plmidi git checkout main cargo install --path . # To enable the system apis via the `jack` backend: cargo install --path . --features system-jack # To disable built-in fluidsynth support: cargo install --path . --features system --no-default-features

systemfeature is enabled)
