Hi all,

The following midi file is using 3 channels - (1) piano , (2) bass ,
(10) drums - and I want to create sheet music for only the piano part:


I tried the following lilypond commands, but I only get the bass clef
in the created "poinciana-converted.pdf" file, as well as lots of
warnings in the last command:

midi2ly poinciana.mid -opoinciana.ly
convert-ly poinciana.ly > poinciana-converted.ly
lilypond poinciana-converted.ly

I tried removing the bass and drums channels in seq24, but opening the
file gives me a "Unsupported MIDI format detected: 0" error.

Please help.
