Hi Lilyponders,

I'm new in this newsgroup, forgive me if my question had already been 

I'm trying the midi2ly utility. I have attached (I hope this mailinglist 
accepts attachments)
1. driekwart.mid - a few bars in 3/4 time (happy birthday,)

I tried this:
# midi2ly -o -d 16 driekwart.mid

The result was a file named "" and not 
"". The -o option is ignored. A bug, or am I doing 
something wrong ?

Another problem: If I do 
# lilypond
the resulting ps/pdf files show happy birthday in 4/4 time, but I do 
see 3/4 time in Again a bug, or newbie-ignorance ?

Last question: shows \version "2.7.18" while I'm 
testing lilypond 2.11.62. Has the program not been maintained/updated 
for a long time ? Shouldn't someone do that, or is everyone focused on 
musicxml2ly these days. I know: MIDI sucks when it comes to producing 
sheet music. But that's no excuse for a malfunctioning midi2ly utility.

The produced by midi2ly looks like this:

% Lily was here -- automatically converted by /usr/bin/midi2ly from 
\version "2.7.18"

trackAchannelA =  {

  \key c \major
  \tempo 4 = 120 
  \time 3/4 

trackA = <<
  \context Voice = channelA \trackAchannelA

trackBchannelA = \relative c {
  g'' a g c |
  % 2
  b2 g4 a |
  % 3
  g d' c2 |
  % 4

trackB = <<
  \context Voice = channelA \trackBchannelA

\score {
    \context Staff=trackB \trackB
