AbcMIDI is a package of tools designed for processing ABC music notation files. It contains several useful programs: abc2midi, yaps, abc2abc, and midi2abc.
abc2midi is possibly the most complex program for creating MIDI files from ABC files. It bundles special features, like handling multivoiced files, extending guitar chords into bass chordal accompaniment, switching particular voices, and accessioning percussion accompaniment.
abc2abc is a useful tool for reforming ABC files, analyzing the syntax, switching to another key, draw out particular voice lines, revise the chords or slur notation and for some functions.
yaps transforms an ABC music file into a PostScript file consisting in the mainly music notation. The source code in this tool is not a copy of abc2ps (the original ABC to PostScript conversion tool) and takes an free approach.
All three of these tools share a unique parser (parseabc.c) so that they read the ABC file in a rigid way. This is beneficial in tracking issues. If you can't tell what is the problem by listening to the MIDI file, you may have more luck looking at the PostScript file created by yaps.
Midi2abc is another good tool bundled with this package. It generates an ABC file from a MIDI file. In some cases the developed ABC file is not especially easy to read, but it is a somewhat exact representation of the MIDI file. This tool is also good for debugging abc2midi when the output file doesn't sound right.
All of these tool run with a command line interface, still there are a few packages which operates as a front end to these tools and offers a graphical user interface
- Bundles a set of special features for processing the files.
- Allows you to check syntax and reformat ABC files.
- Doesn't have a graphical interface, it can be operated only via CLI (Commnad Line Interface).
