I'm impressed by the printed results from your program - I remember 'Score', about a millennium ago which I ran on an XT and that was a script based application. When you were ready to print a score, you had to run the print run all night, and keep getting up to un-jam the printer. Still the results were great.

These days I'm a composer and I use Sibelius 4 as a composition tool, and the thought of learning a new language is rather daunting. Can Lilypond accept a Midi file and convert it into its own format, and then to its beautiful printed output? Do composers use Lilypond as their primary work system? It seems to me that one needs to have a piece already written, on paper perhaps, and then input it to your program. Or am I off track here?
