Hi everybody,

This is the first time I write on this mailing list, and I've got a question someone probably has already answered in the past :)
That said, I had a 'quick look' at the mailing list archive, and I couldn't find my answer. I hope I didn't miss any thread.

Is anyone aware of any MIDI modules compatible with Lua5.3?
The only 2  MIDI modules I've found are:

lovemidi (
luamidi (

and both aren't compatible with 5.3.

PS: maybe it's just me, since I'm only now seriously approaching Lua, but I'm struggling a bit with Lua5.3 in finding compatible modules.


I wrote one for 5.1 a loooong time ago, but it was closed-source and I don't have access to it anymore.

What are you looking for in a MIDI module? Do you just need to be able to manipulate MIDI data (e.g. MIDI files, or the host application does the I/O), or do you need to be able to interface with a MIDI device directly?
