class:Sequence [NONE]


  • public class Sequence
    extends Object
    
    A Sequence is a data structure containing musical information (often an entire song or composition) that can be played back by a Sequencer object. Specifically, the Sequence contains timing information and one or more tracks. Each track consists of a series of MIDI events (such as note-ons, note-offs, program changes, and meta-events). The sequence's timing information specifies the type of unit that is used to time-stamp the events in the sequence.

    A Sequence can be created from a MIDI file by reading the file into an input stream and invoking one of the getSequence methods of MidiSystem. A sequence can also be built from scratch by adding new Tracks to an empty Sequence, and adding MidiEvent objects to these Tracks.

  • Sequence

    public Sequence​(float divisionType,
                    int resolution)
             throws InvalidMidiDataException
    
    Constructs a new MIDI sequence with the specified timing division type and timing resolution. The division type must be one of the recognized MIDI timing types. For tempo-based timing, divisionType is PPQ (pulses per quarter note) and the resolution is specified in ticks per beat. For SMTPE timing, divisionType specifies the number of frames per second and the resolution is specified in ticks per frame. The sequence will contain no initial tracks. Tracks may be added to or removed from the sequence using createTrack() and deleteTrack(javax.sound.midi.Track).
    Parameters:
    divisionType - the timing division type (PPQ or one of the SMPTE types)
    resolution - the timing resolution
    Throws:
    InvalidMidiDataException - if divisionType is not valid
    See Also:
    PPQ, SMPTE_24, SMPTE_25, SMPTE_30DROP, SMPTE_30, getDivisionType(), getResolution(), getTracks()

  • Sequence

    public Sequence​(float divisionType,
                    int resolution,
                    int numTracks)
             throws InvalidMidiDataException
    
    Constructs a new MIDI sequence with the specified timing division type, timing resolution, and number of tracks. The division type must be one of the recognized MIDI timing types. For tempo-based timing, divisionType is PPQ (pulses per quarter note) and the resolution is specified in ticks per beat. For SMTPE timing, divisionType specifies the number of frames per second and the resolution is specified in ticks per frame. The sequence will be initialized with the number of tracks specified by numTracks. These tracks are initially empty (i.e. they contain only the meta-event End of Track). The tracks may be retrieved for editing using the getTracks() method. Additional tracks may be added, or existing tracks removed, using createTrack() and deleteTrack(javax.sound.midi.Track).
    Parameters:
    divisionType - the timing division type (PPQ or one of the SMPTE types)
    resolution - the timing resolution
    numTracks - the initial number of tracks in the sequence
    Throws:
    InvalidMidiDataException - if divisionType is not valid
    See Also:
    PPQ, SMPTE_24, SMPTE_25, SMPTE_30DROP, SMPTE_30, getDivisionType(), getResolution()

method:getDivisionType() [NONE]

method:getResolution() [NONE]

  • getResolution

    public int getResolution()
    Obtains the timing resolution for this sequence. If the sequence's division type is PPQ, the resolution is specified in ticks per beat. For SMTPE timing, the resolution is specified in ticks per frame.
    Returns:
    the number of ticks per beat (PPQ) or per frame (SMPTE)
    See Also:
    getDivisionType(), Sequence(float, int) , MidiFileFormat.getResolution()

method:createTrack() [NONE]

  • createTrack

    public Track createTrack()
    Creates a new, initially empty track as part of this sequence. The track initially contains the meta-event End of Track. The newly created track is returned. All tracks in the sequence may be retrieved using getTracks(). Tracks may be removed from the sequence using deleteTrack(javax.sound.midi.Track).
    Returns:
    the newly created track

method:deleteTrack(javax.sound.midi.Track) [NONE]

  • deleteTrack

    public boolean deleteTrack​(Track track)
    Removes the specified track from the sequence.
    Parameters:
    track - the track to remove
    Returns:
    true if the track existed in the track and was removed, otherwise false
    See Also:
    createTrack(), getTracks()

method:getTracks() [NONE]

method:getMicrosecondLength() [NONE]

  • getMicrosecondLength

    public long getMicrosecondLength()
    Obtains the duration of this sequence, expressed in microseconds.
    Returns:
    this sequence's duration in microseconds

method:getTickLength() [NONE]

  • getTickLength

    public long getTickLength()
    Obtains the duration of this sequence, expressed in MIDI ticks.
    Returns:
    this sequence's length in ticks
    See Also:
    getMicrosecondLength()

method:getPatchList() [NONE]
