pg2mma - convert PGMusic .pat file to MMA format
pg2mma <infile> <outfile> No options. Both infile and outfile must be specified. No files will be overwritten.
This program is used to convert a PGMusic .pat file containing extended patch definitions to a MMA format. The .pat files will contain lines like: [ [Yamaha PSR 9000 - E.Piano [ (P1) 4.0.114=Galaxy EP 4.0.117=Stage EP 4.0.115=Polaris EP 5.0.118=Jazz Chorus 5.0.113=Hyper Tines 4.0.119=Cool! EP 4.0.120=Phase EP 5.0.116=New Tines This program will convert the above to: Begin Patch Set // Yamaha PSR 9000 - E.Piano // (P1) 4.0.114=GalaxyEp 4.0.117=StageEp 4.0.115=PolarisEp 5.0.118=JazzChorus 5.0.113=HyperTines 4.0.119=Cool!Ep 4.0.120=PhaseEp 5.0.116=NewTines End The names in the original file are converted to CamelCase; both ';' and  comments are converted to MMA // style. The conversion recognizes the "ONEBASED" keyword. When found, subsequent patch values will be decremented by 1. The produced files should be useable directly by mma. However, there are a few cautions: · the .pat files we've looked at do contain errors. · many of the .pat files redefine existing GM voice names. You will need to change these names or put up with warning messages from MMA.
The latest version of this program is always distributed with MMA and is available at http://www.mellowood.ca/mma
