hello all,
this is very likely OT to some extent, so apologies for that first.

what i want to do is: work in cm, generate midifiles from processes,
etc.; import into a midi sequncer/editor to hack a bit on them; export
as midifile back into the cm/cmn world to do further analysis and
printing as cmn score.

i'm on linux/alsa, and the best bet for functional midi sequencer for
alsa seemed to be MusE. however, MusE exports midifiles that cm doesn't
like, i.e.:

CM(43): (import-events "/home/bsack/midi/test2.midi" :meta-exclude t
:note-type :keynum)
Error: unexpected time signature length: 2

does anyone have a better idea? can i hack the midifile so the timesig
looks more like something cm will digest?
