Drumstick (https://drumstick.sourceforge.io/docs/index.html) is a set of 
GPLv3 licensed C++/Qt libraries for MIDI applications. The project includes 
several tools as examples, and among them is the drumstick-guiplayer 
utility that leverages the Drumstick::ALSA library, so it is available only 
for Linux (because the ALSA sequencer is a linux only technology). Some 
people have requested a program with the same functionalities also on 
Windows and macOS, so here it is ...

Some key features:

* MIDI Output to hardware MIDI ports, or any other Drumstick backend
* Transpose song tonality between -12 and +12 semitones
* Change MIDI volume level (using MIDI CC7)
* Scale song speed between half and double tempo

In v1.1.0:

* Pianola, Channels and Rhythm views
* Sticky Window Snapping (for Windows OS only)
* Russian translation (Thanks to Sergey Basalaev)
* Spanish translation updated
* Recent files menu options
* Language choice menu options
* Command line options: --portable and --file (for portable configuration)

New in v1.2.0:

* Lyrics view (karaoke window)
* Character encoding detection
* File Info (metadata) dialog

Build requirements:

* C++11 compiler
* Qt5
* Drumstick 2.1
* CMake 3.10
