Is it possible to convert a XM file into sheet music?
« on: October 26, 2012, 12:28:29 »

Hi, I am new on Mod Archive Forums so I hope I don't post this in the wrong section or something.

I have a song in XM format that I really like. I play the piano and would like to have sheet music of that song so I can play it on the piano. Is it possible to convert it somehow to sheet music?
Thanks very much.

You can try converting it to MIDI (using some tool like 2MIDI) and then open that MIDI file in some program that can output sheet music (lilypond is one of them, I believe). However, of course this will only work to certain degrees and it will e.g. not work with sampled chords, sampled melody phrases and similar things.
