Binary package “abcmidi” in ubuntu trusty

converter from ABC to MIDI format and back

 This package contains the programs `abc2midi' and `midi2abc', which
 convert from the abc musical notation format to standard MIDI format
 and vice-versa. They can generate accompaniment from guitar chords
 in the abc file, as well as insert various MIDI events; the
 MIDI-to-abc translation tries to figure out bars, triplets and
 accidentals on its own.
 .
 The package also contains `abc2abc' (an abc prettyprinter/transposer),
 `mftext' (a program that dumps a MIDI file as text), and `midicopy'
 (a program that extracts specific tracks, channels or time intervals
 from a MIDI file).
 .
 The programs in this package are based on the `midifilelib'
 distribution available from http://www.harmony-central.com/MIDI/.
