Thread Name: Converting abc to notation AND midi
Subject: RE: Converting abc to notation AND midi
Anyone know of other online ABC converters that work quickly?

Like I said, I keep a list on my homepage (and if I've left one out I'd like to know).

There have been two different conventions for representing the octave in ABC. The original standard and BarFly did it one way (note pitches were absolute,not clef-dependent); some other programs assume you mean a transposition if you just specify a bass clef. abcm2ps seems to adapt to either way - it's a long time since it's given me a problem in that department. abc2midi seems to have a development process that involves replacing one bug with another and it's anybody's guess what any new version of it will do.
