Subject: RE: Tech: Midi, abc and words
I should have mentioned that I have done some reading myself, essentially with the result you are describing, Mick. MelodyAssistant only supports single-voice tunes, presumably following some standard 1.x - not surprising since the program has not changed for ages. More information may be hoped from those of us who are in the "Inner Circle" of ABC - I presume that these exist, since Chris Walshaw is a folk musician himself.
You mention Finale - did you test abc2xml.py and xml2abc.py? I tried both and found that they support all the features I need, definitely close to ABC 2.1. But, as I wrote, I am not an ABC power user.
