Feature request for BASSMIDI
« on: 8 May '18 - 19:59 »
I have a few files from which I can't read the lyrics text with BassMidi.dll.
I think the lyrics are in a strange format ... I think like Solton or T1000.

Can you make it possible to extract them like other formats?

If you upload the files, I'll check them out.

It looks like those files have the lyrics in some special sysex messages. I think they're a bit too specialised/non-standard for BASSMIDI to include support for but if you would like to parse them from the MIDI file yourself (perhaps using a 3rd-party MIDI parser), they begin with 0x00 0x20 0x24 0x00, and the next byte seems to be a display line number, followed by the text.
