I've found a very interesting application, Improvisor

*Impro-Visor* (short for “Improvisation Advisor”) is a music notation program designed to help jazz musicians compose and hear solos similar to ones that might be improvised. The objective is to improve understanding of solo construction and tune chord changes. There are other, secondary, things it can do, such as improvise on its own. It has also been used for transcription. Because rhythm-section (e.g. piano, bass, drums) accompaniment is automatically generated from chords, Impro-Visor can be used as a play-along device. Now having a wider array of accompaniment styles <>, its use is not limited to jazz. Distributed with Impro-Visor is "The Imaginary Book <>", a chords-only fakebook with chord progressions to about 2500 tunes.

Afaik it's GPL software and that makes me dreaming about having Lilypond functionality in it... It has an midi export function, so maybe the midi can be converted to lilypond?

Are people here working with this application?

I tried to convert the midi file generated by Impro-Visor, by midi2lily and Rosegarden. But got some errors

Both results, check attachment

Here is the midi file:


I hope these files contains more info ;)

See attachments

Maybe it's possible to improve the midi2lily convert from Improvisor to Lilypond (maybe via Rosegarden)?

Is this possible? What should be improved? The Midi export function of Impro-visor or the midi import function of rosegarden or midi2ly script? Or both?

Suggestions, ideas?
