First you will need to download the latest version from the download page

Pick the version that suits your operating system, or download the source to compile it yourself.

If you are using Windows 95 or later, you need a MIDI device set up. If running VTone.exe does not work, go to Start->Control Panel->Multimedia and select a synthesiser.

If you are using Linux, make sure you have a sequencer set up. Timidity++ is a good one. Kill any sound servers you have running, and then start Timidity in ALSA client mode (for this you need ALSA sound drivers obviously)

	killall artsd
	timidity -iA -B2,8 -Os -EFreverb=0

That usually does the trick.


Linux, with an OSS sequencer and Qt2.x or greater

	cd vtones

Windows with Qt2.3 non-commercial

	* Start a command shell
	* Run vcvars32.bat (it should be in your Visual Studio directory)
	cd vtones
	tmake -o Makefile -win32


Todo List

'Clean' the MIDI files so that notes are saved as with the exact lengths of crotchets, quavers, etc. This means opening the file in a notation editor, such as Finale or Rosegarden would give better results.
