About the TSE3 library

TSE3 is a portable open source 'sequencer engine' written in C++. It provides programmers with rich and powerful sequencing capabilities. It is a 'sequencer engine' becuase it provides the actual driving force elements of a sequencer but provides no form of user interface.

TSE3 is a mature library based on a lot of experience. Versions of TSE have been in use for a number of years. Whilst not providing the user interface, it provides a lot of assistance to a UI, attempting to provide as much functionality as possible in as generic a manner as possible.

TSE3 is a product of Trax Software, written by Pete Goodliffe.


TSE3 provides a feature packed system, with a simple coherent API for application useage. It's advanced sequencer engine features include:

Addtionally, TSE3 provides a level of application support. Common tasks that a sequencing application would implement that can be taken out of the user interface logic and placed at a higher level are provided within the TSE3 library. It therefore also offers the following facilities:

tse3play - the multi-format playback utility

The TSE3 library also comes with a sample application that uses the library, tse3play. This program is a command-line TSE3MDL and MIDI file player with a host of control features.
