I have a specific task I want to accomplish...I am trying to figure out if there is an a way of doing this. Basically, for a project I am working on, I want to create sound files for individual music notes.
So, for example, a piano playing a single "A" sound would be one file. A piano playing a "B" sound would be another file.
I would like to do this for a large number of instruments. I know that Mac OS has midi instruments built-in. I been able to create the sorts of files I am looking for by hand in Garage Band by playing a software instrument, saving the file, then altering the pitch.
This is time-consuming, however, and I think the process could be automated. Maybe if I could create a midi file with the command line and then convert that midi file to a sound file, I could do it with a shell script?
Does anybody have any recommendations to put me on the right track?
