Subject: re: MIDI to lilypond
I looked into this today. The problem was an upgrade of Lilypond, which also included an upgrade of midi2ly, in combination with this problem:
Somehow, I only tested the Lilypond source to MIDI and sheet music conversion after the upgrade, but not the MIDI to Lilypond source bit - sorry about that. It should now work, or at least work better.

Subject: MIDI to lilypond
One of the newest members asked about uploading MIDI files and having them changed into lilypond. His example wasn't working for some reason. Has anyone tried this? Did it work? Are there any special considerations (e.g. type 1 vs. type 1, tempo changes, quantizing, etc.)? Any advice or suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

How to insert music:

Add a bit of sheet music, along with a MIDI file, simply by entering note names in Lilypond syntax between the [L] and [/L] tags.
For example, you can try what happens if you enter: [l]g'4 g'4 d''4 d''4 e''4 e''4 d''2[/l] (use the Preview function if you don't actually want to post this).
You can create these lists of note names by clicking on piano keys here.

How to post an audio recording:

If you just want to sing, whistle, or play a melody so that other forum visitors can hear it, follow these steps:

  1. Record your audio here.
  2. You should notice a 32-character hash code, something like: 2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf
  3. copy this hash code and paste it into a forum post, enclosed in the audio tags, for example: [audio]2a40281c5001c5a7d8c9f57fcdeccfaf[/audio]

How to mark a thread as solved:

If the original question in a thread is solved, please mark it as solved using the "solved" icon (or by just typing [solved] into your post). This makes life easier for people who are willing to identify melodies, since unsolved problems are easier to spot that way. If a problem turns out to not be solved after all, just write [/solved] in a new post, and the thread will be labeled accordingly.
