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 file.mg 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.
