# Deprecated API Calls
The following calls still work, but they have been superseded by other methods. If you are writing a new app, avoid these because they might go away sometime in the future.
tuneObjectArray = ABCJS.parseOnly(tunebookString, params)
Parses all the tunes in the tunebookString and returns an array of them parsed structure.
This has turned out to not be that useful since you can do the same effect by passing "*" in as the element and the returned value will have a lot more information.
This animation has been replaced by
TimingCallbacks, which is much more flexible.
ABCJS.startAnimation(outputElement, tuneObject, animationParams)
Puts an animated cursor on the rendered music. Note: this is deprecated in favor of
Stops the animation that was started with
Pauses/resumes the animation that was started with
false to pause or resume.
This has been replaced by the new audio interface. Hopefully the new interface will work on more systems, be faster, and require fewer resources.
Returns true if the device and browser is capable of playing MIDI.
Sets an alternate location for the soundfont.
tuneObjectArray = ABCJS.renderMidi(output, tunebookString, params)
Completely creates midi for the tunebook. Note: this is deprecated in favor of Synth Documentation.
Starts playing the MIDI for the element passed in. If the element is already playing, this pauses it.
Stops playing whatever is currently playing.
Moves the progress back to the beginning for whatever is currently playing.
Moves the progress to whatever percent is passed in for whatever is currently playing.
