netBeep project is a program that makes networkable computer music with a PCs' speakers.
netBeep is a collection of Perl scripts that enable you to make music using only your computer's internal speaker. It was designed to work over networks, allowing you to use many computers to play the music -- each one playing a certain part.
This means that a whole orchestra of computers can be created, and it allows for chords and harmonies. You can, of course, use a standalone computer if you wish.
A script is included that converts Nokia-style ring tones to netBeep music files (scores). There is a Vim syntax-highlighting file that should help you out when writing your own scores.
An extensive user manual and reference guide are included.
Here are some key features of "netBeep":
· It is easy to write your own scores due to the simple, yet flexible, music language (and its documentation).
· A syntax-highlighting file for Vim that helps you write your own scores is provided. (The manual explains how to install it.)
· A comprehensive and easy-to-read user manual and reference guide has been written and is available in multiple formats.
What's New in This Release:
· Added EXAMPLES section to man page. It explains that there are a lot of examples included with netBeep, what they're there for and how to access them.
· Craig and I Completely re-wrote the build system using Makefiles. This has made maintainance and installation much easier.
