What is PortMedia?
PortMedia is a set of APIs and library implementations for music and other media.
PortMedia is open-source and runs on Windows, Macintosh, and Linux.
Currently, libraries support Audio I/O and MIDI I/O.
Who is PortMedia?
PortMedia is the result of discussion among many computer music researchers and developers. After considering many options, the group decided to endorse the work of Phil Burk and Ross Bencina who created the PortAudio library. Supporters and users of PortMedia are listed below. Our goal is to extend the PortAudio foundation to support MIDI, sound files, and perhaps other basic music software interfaces. You can help!
PortMedia users benefit from simple clean interfaces for sound input and output.
PortMedia is maintained by a community: the more we share, the less we write and maintain.
No other cross-platform APIs enjoy a support community.
