Mass convert songs from .ABC to .MSCZ
I came across Paul Hardy's Session Tunebook
It is a collection of celtic tunes which is available as PDF and in ABC format. I would like to convert it to MuseScore MSCZ.
There's one ABC file that contains all 500+ songs, which is pretty common for ABC collections like this.
Copy/pasting the songs one by one into MuseScore's ABC Import pluging works well, but is inonvenient for such a big number of songs.
I tried abc2xml from http://wim.vree.org/svgParse/abc2xml.html. This creates one XML per song, but has some issues with file names and score properties. They are processed, but not shown in MuseScore where I expect them.
Any ideas what else I coud try?
Is it possible to apply MuseScore features to a big number of files e.g. by command line calls?
Things like transferring meta data from Score Properties to the Title box of the score, apply a common style from a .MSS file, format all scores with 4 measures per line and so on.
