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


       midi2mg [ options ] midi_file


       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.


       -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 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).


       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.
