The increasing availability of on-line music has
motivated a growing interest for organizing, commercializing,
and delivering this kind of multimedia content. For it, the use of
metadata is of utmost importance. Metadata permit organization,
indexing, and retrieval of music contents. They are, therefore,
a subject of research both from the design and automatic
extraction approaches. The present work focuses on this second
issue, providing an open source tool for metadata extraction
from standard MIDI files. The tool is presented, the utilized
metadata are explained, and some applications and experiments
are described as examples of its capabilities.
