> Converts MIDI files into music box scores that are ready to print.
This is a command-line program that converts MIDI files to scores that can be printed for 30 note music boxes (such as [this one for example](https://smile.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0774TSP3T/)). While it does not currently support other music boxes (I don't have any others on hand), it could be extended to support them fairly trivially given the track width and the names of the notes it can play.
If you are unsure of how to create a MIDI file, I recommend [Musescore](https://musescore.org/), which is a free and open source music notation program that has a MIDI export function.
