G'day all. I have been using Midiscan. I find it reasonably good. The comments about having a clean copy are valid. I find witha good clean copy and if necessary a tiff graphics editor to remove unwanted blemishes a good midi file can be easily generated with 90% accuracy. The downside is that the midifile tends to be too clinical and lacks any lilt that celtic music I'm interested in needs.
If any of you would like further info my email address is firstname.lastname@example.org and I will try to answer as soon as possible. regards Duncan
