I've been trying to wrap my head around a PD solution for converting a midi file type 0 file to a text file in the following format.
For each note on, I'll need the pitch number followed by a semi-colon.
For multiple note ons, (polyphony) the pitch numbers should be grouped on the same line.
I don't need velocity, ticks, channel numbers or timing data, just note-ons. The application to drive a sequence of notes via drum triggers.
I've tried Mr. Peach's MIDI file read patch and the major issue i'm experiencing is how to parse the data into a simple stripped down readable text format.
I'd prefer not to go to 3rd party solutions. (On a Mac)
Would be great to hear your thoughts, feedback, solutions.
