I'm well aware of that. My first aim is to make midi2ly maybe not 
perfect but at least useable with not extremely complicated MIDI files. 
The current version is too buggy to be useable with even the simplest 
MIDI file.

The resulting lilypond file can then be edited and corrected by hand.

Which brings me to a featurerequest to the guy(s) that develop 

It would be nice if Frescobaldi had menu items "import MIDI file" and 
"import MusicXML". Maybe it can call midi2ly or musicxml2ly with the 
appropiate, configurable, commandline options to create a temporary 
file, and then load the result - ready for editing in the Frescobaldi 
editor ? Just a thought, maybe it can be done.
