I am a music student looking for software that can convert midi files to sheet music. Are there any programs for Ubuntu like the Windows programs Notation Musician or MidiNotate Player?
There is the package
abcmidi that provides the application
midi2abc, capable of converting midi files to abc file.
sudo apt install abcmidi midi2abc prelude.mid > prelude.abc # midi to abc notation format yaps prelude.abc # abc format to postscript evince prelude.ps # open with evince
abc files can be easily converted to something printable with
yaps from the package of the same name.
Rosegarden is mainly a full blown MIDI sequencer but it also comes with a quite professional notation feature to convert MIDI data to scores:
Depending on your needs in case you only need a small piece of MIDI to transform it to scores this may be overkill, but if you need to edit these files or start composing you may need one or the other of it's additional features.
