ABC Player Recommendations

Could anyone recommend the best ABC player that is available for download.

Do you use Windows or Mac?

Hmmm, the rest of my post (above) seems to have disappeared.

Anyways, abcmus is the best player I’ve ever used; it gets the accents and ornaments right for almost any rhythm type. You can actually hear a difference if you switch between reel and hornpipe and no rhythm at all!

Re: ABC Player Recommendations

Is there one where you can input a midi file and it will output the abc?

I have a program named Mid2ABC which converts midi files to abc. I don’t remember where I got it, however. For general abc players, I consider ABCMUS to be my favorite.

If you are a Mac user, Barfly is a *fantastic* ABC program.

Re: ABC Player Recommendations

I really like ABCMus as well, especially the autochord assignment feature. There is one problem I continually have with it, though. When I use it to do any work on a large file of ABC tunes, it frequently messes up the file by putting dozens of copies of each tune in the file. Then the next time I open the file in ABC2Win, it has swollen up to 2000 tunes and I have to go in and manually take out all the duplicates.

Anybody else have this happen?
