There have been many requests from several people for Lilypond-to-MusicXML
conversion. I am not going to repeat that question.
We do have a musicxml2ly script. I have tried it with many example xml and
mxl files from here:
And the lilypond results are sometimes not quite perfect - which is
acceptable - but sometimes really bad or even useless.
The good news is that in many cases only a little editing of the .ly file
is required to turn a bad conversion into a good one. For example, all
lead sheets from Wikifonia that I have tried have the Chords printed below
instead of above the staff.
The MakeMusic/Recordare example set reveals some more serious problems
like wrong stem directions, duplicated text and dynamic markings,
Is anyone currently actively working on musicxml2ly ?
Does it help if I write a more detailed description of errors I encounter
when I try to convert real life examples of MusicXML files? Or are many
problems already known?
