       midicsv - translate MIDI file to CSV


       midicsv [ -u -v ] [ infile [ outfile ] ]


       midicsv  reads a standard MIDI file and decodes it into a CSV (Comma-Separated Value) file
       which preserves all the information in the MIDI file.  The ASCII CSV file  may  be  loaded
       into  a  spreadsheet  or  database application, or processed by a program to transform the
       MIDI data (for example, to key transpose a composition or extract a track  from  a  multi-
       track sequence).  A CSV file in the format created by midicsv may be converted back into a
       standard MIDI file with the csvmidi program.


       -u        Print how-to-call information.

       -v        Print verbose debugging information on standard error.  The MIDI file header  is
                 dumped, along with the length of each track in the file.


       If no infile is specified or infile is ``-'', midicsv reads its input from standard input;
       if no outfile is given or outfile is ``-'', CSV output is  written   to  standard  output.
       The  input  and output are processed in a strictly serial manner; consequently midicsv may
       be used in pipelines without restrictions.


       midicsv assumes its input is a well-formed standard MIDI file; while some  error  checking
       is performed, gross errors in the input file may cause midicsv to crash.

       Please report problems to


       csvmidi(1), midicsv(5)
