I guess reaper feeds into this too. Sadly even the audio editing side of this is completely foxing me at the moment, the sound device keeps vanishing and I'm running out of free days, almost ready to throw in the towel.

Good morning.

I can offer you various pieces in braille format that are ready to be
embossed, but that's the problem, because you prefer those midi files,
right?

There is a software called Braille music editor which might help you
with what you're needing.

Cheers.

I have a sort-of similar question. I used to play piano in my sighted
days but mever memorised any of the music, prefering to read the score
as I played. Now I can't read a score I can't remember much of those
pieces.

I have PDF scores of a lot of piano music and wonder if there is any
way that something like Muse Score could open a PDF and I could
somehow figure out what notes are where? I'm thinking of chords with
three or more notes across both hands, my ear being unable to figure
them out by listening to a recording.

I'd love a means of converting a PDF or a midi file into a text from
which I can determine the notes ... the durations are less important
for me since I can remember how the pieces sound.

It's funny, I just asked a sighted friend for help with three notes in
Chopin's first ballade which I was struggling to remember just this
morning!

Thanks for any ideas (and no, I never learned to read Braille music)
