Midi import

From MusiCAD

It is possible to import a MIDI-file in MusiCAD thereby converting it to an editable MusiCAD-file. However, conversion can be tricky sometimes. Especially live played performances are difficult to 'catch' using readable notation.

[Lyricfs]
Sometimes barlines dividing long notes require a 're-bar' operation.
[Upbar]
