As far as I know, the ambition of the LilyPond MIDI output has never
been to produce an output of high listening quality, rather it's
mainly intended to help proofreading a score. Then, I don't really see
the point of including this conversion into LilyPond. If you want to
use LilyPond as a sequencer, it feels much more relevant to start by
improving the MIDI generation.

Hi all,

The last few months saw the creation of the freepats sound patterns package and updates to timidity. Creating an Ogg vorbis file from midi is now as simple as:

$ timidity -Ov lilypondgenerated.midi

It would be trivial to add Ogg vorbis output to lilypond and/or lilypond-book.

Does that fit into the Lilypond philosophy? I don't know, but I see a few
advantages of integrating Ogg vorbis output support, especially with

* eliminates a conversion step for Lilypond users
* easier to burn to CD, use on portable player (this would help me as a music
* helps spread the free Ogg vorbis audio compression format
* ...

This would of course add timidity and/or freepats dependencies...

Any thoughts?
