qt_tools 2.6 eats MIDI, tiny rev

I received a question from a qt_tools user asking, How do I convert a MIDI file to an audio file?

Curiously, although I worked at Apple for rather a few years focused on that particular problem, I’d never thought of using qt_tools that way. Turns out it’s easy if you specify the correct exporter, but I went ahead and added that into its “built-ins”.

qt_tools 2.6 will convert a MIDI file to AIFF with a command like:

$ qt_export this.mid that.aiff

Also shows the poster frame’s time in qt_info, as per a user request.

[[get qt_tools 2.6]]

oh, i dont know. what do you think?
