NAME

midi2mg - convert a midi file into midge(1) text format.

 

SYNOPSIS

midi2mg [ options ] midi_file

 

DESCRIPTION

midi2mg reads a midi file and writes its contents to a file in midge(1) text format. It prints a message to stdout for any midi events it can't handle.

 

OPTIONS

-h or --help
Display help text.
-v or --verbose
Print verbose messages to stdout.
-q or --quiet
Quiet. No stdout.
-o file or --outfile file
Write output to file. Otherwise converts file.mid to file.mg Outputs to stdout if file is `-'. When outputting to stdout quiet mode is automatically set unless verbose mode is set earlier on the command line.
-w or --ignore-wrong-track
Ignore MIDI events on the wrong channel instead of exiting.
-n i[,j...] or --include-tracks i[,j...]
Only convert the tracks in the comma separated list, with track numbers starting from 1.
-N i[,j...] or --exclude-tracks i[,j...]
Convert all tracks except those specified in the comma separated list.
-t n or --tuplet-factor n
An additional factor for files with odd note lengths, to prevent them being translated as decimals (n should be a prime number greater than 3).
-F or --no-factorise
Do not factorise time values (may help to decipher unusual tuplet values).

 

BUGS

Does not correctly handle some text events.

Does not handle SMTPE style tempo events.

Does not handle changes of tempo/time_sig/key if these are on a separate tempo track.
