I'll be available this Tuesday, March 6th at the Tutorial Preparation Session to help to install things and answer questions. (I probably won't be able to be there on the 7th)
You need three things:
The code for the tutorial
The MIDIutil library:
pip install http://midiutil.googlecode.com/files/MIDIUtil-0.87.tar.gz
A working midi player
After your download the tutorial code and install the MIDIutil library, run the script src/demo.py and try to play the file midi/demo.mid. If you get a sound, You're all set!
Please don't count on having internet during the tutorial
For more instructions check the README file.
