Just some simple tools for parsing midi files. Maestro Midi does nothing to infer or coerce the midi file in any way. It'll give you a format mirroring 1:1 with the file that was provided.
Add as a dependency with
libraryDependencies += "com.github.jacoby6000" %% "maestro-midi" % "0.1.1"
import com.github.jacoby6000.maestro.midi._ import java.nio.file.Files import java.nio.file.Paths val midiData: Either[scodec.Err, StandardMidi] = decodeMidi(Files.readAllBytes(Paths.get("path/to/midi/file.mid")))

To make use of this library, it is best to have some familiarity with the midi spec. This library will handle things like "Running Status" for you, and everything else is just mapped to the events that you will read in the specification.
Some consequences of the structure returned being a mirror of the file, is that there are some
events which you might not expect.
NoteOn(channel, pitch, velocity = 0) is exactly the same as
NoteOff(channel, pitch, 40) and many applications will export midi using
velocity set to
0 instead of
NoteOff actions. This helps shorten the midi file because of
the whole "Running Status" thing.
midiFile.normalizeOnOff will fix this and give you what
you probably expect.
midiFile.denormalizeOnOff will do the opposite.
If you read the specification, you'll note that the Midi specification leaves room for custom
events. To use these, just create a
midi.extensions.MidiExtension instance, and then run
decodeMidiExtended(bytes, extension) to get an instance of a midi file with the extension events
properly decoded. I don't currently have any of these, because I've only ever needed standard midi
events. If you come up with one, let me know and I'll add some docs around it.
If you hold on to instances of
midi.decode.fileCodec, be wary that the individual instances are
not thread safe. This is because I'm bad and the way way I'm dealing with "Running Status" in the
eventCodec uses state. If you parallelize on calls to
midi.decodeMidi you will be fine,
however. Each call to
decodeMidi gets its own instance of
