MIDI keyboard to Lilypond realtime converter

Hello everybody,

I put together (class project) a small utility called Rumor, for
playing keyboard and getting lilypond (including rhythm). Extract
from its homepage follows. At
this page, you will also find screenshots, sources and



Rumor is a realtime monophonic MIDI to Lilypond converter. It
receives MIDI events, quantizes them according to its metronome
on the fly and writes corresponding Lilypond notation to standard
output. Tempo, meter, key and other parameters can be set via
command-line options. 

Its only purpose is to help out with music transcriptions (even
of polyphonic music with separated voices); typical usage is to
write Lilypond file skeleton by hand and then paste Rumor output
into it. See examples below. It does not want to be a full-blown
quantization program; fancy features like tuplets, polyphony and
tempo tracking were ommited deliberately. 

Rumor mimics handwritten Lilypond source: 

* it uses relative notation and omits note length if it has not
changed.  * It writes rhythms intelligently, in relation to bar
position (tied single notes, over barlines if necessary).  * It
resolves enharmonic ambiguities (e.g. gis/as) given the
--key=[NOTE] option. 

It is written in c++ and developped under Linux; windows port is
conceivable but not planned.
