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. But this project is much more ...

Some key features:

* MIDI Output to hardware MIDI ports, or any other Drumstick backends, like 
soft synths
* Transpose song tonality between -12 and +12 semitones
* Change MIDI volume level (using MIDI CC7)
* Scale song speed between half and double tempo
* Supports MID/KAR/RMI (Standard MIDI Files) and WRK (Cakewalk) file 

Changes in v1.5.1:

* Fixed GH ticket #6: The dependency target "update_helpfiles" of target 
"dmidiplayer" does not exist. The pandoc utility is optional again.
* Fixed error checking of DwmGetWindowAttribute() call. This caused a 
problem in Windows 7 running the "Windows Classic" theme.
* Support for RIFF MIDI files, provided by Drumstick 2.4.0
* Czech manual updated, thanks to Pavel Fric

Build requirements:

* C++11 compiler
* Qt5
* Drumstick libraries v2.3
* Uchardet v0.0.7
* CMake 3.14
* Pandoc (when BUILD_DOCS=on)
