The file that contains the instrument configuration for the
rate The sound rate you want the the audio data output at. Rates

The initial options to set for the library. see below.

typically used in computer MIDI players. These can differ
somewhat to volume levels found on some midi hardware
which may use a volume curve based on decibels. This
option sets the volume levels to what you'd expect on
By default libWildMidi uses linear interpolation for the
resampling of the sound samples. Setting this option
enables the library to use a resampling method that
attempts to fill in the gaps giving richer sound.
libWildMidi has an 8 reflection reverb engine. Use this
option to give more depth to the output.
