Subject: RE: Help requested for ABC notation
Exactly. MIDI and ABC are nearly as different as a recording of a tune and the sheet music of the tune. Both are great but they aren't substitutes for each other. The midi to abc conversion programs I have used are very literal. They need to have some intelligence about timing built in to them. For instance if it sees a 7/64th note followed by a 9/64th note it should put out two eighth notes.
