Open Song to Chord Pro Converter

First of all, let me personally thank you for downloading this. I sincerely hope that it will be of use to you in whatever you may use it for.

Purpose

The purpose of this program is to convert sheet music from the Open Song format to the Chord Pro format. Essentially there is a ton of existing sheet music for the Open Song format, but there are some great android apps that use Chord Pro. This application is designed to make the sheet music usable to Chord Pro readers.

Use

Using this program is quite easy. There are 3 major ways to use it:

  1. Simply place the "SongConverter.exe" file in a folder of songs you wish to convert. It will automatically look for files with no extension, or with the .     xml extension that Open Song songs may use. It will convert those songs, and then create .pro files with the same name. If a song can't be converted, it will simply skip over it (you can report a problem to me at mirhagk@gmail.com).

  2. Another way you can use it is by dragging the files you wish to convert directly onto [SongConverter.exe] and it will convert the files and place them in whatever folder the original was in.

  3. Advanced Users Only: You can also call the .exe from the command line and pass in file names as arguments. This can be done manually, or with an automated tool, making it very easy to use this in another application.

Report Problems/Suggest Features

You should report any and all problems to mirhagk@gmail.com. I will try to rectify any problems, or any features that people would like me to add. You can of course do it yourself at the project page.

Support

I am merely a university student working on projects such as these in my spare time. I would love nothing more than to be able to dedicate more time to projects like this, but I need to pay my university tuition. If you can help me out I can spend more time doing projects like these rather than getting a job elsewhere. Please go to my website and click on the donate button to donate to me. Thank you very much.

If you are using one of my projects I would love to hear from you, hear what you're doing with it, and how you like it. Please let me know at mirhagk@gmail.com
