Hi everyone,

I was wondering if anyone had experience importing or transcribing music from a common music editor into PICO-8.

I have a friend who is musically inclined (no coding experience, does not own PICO-8) and was interested in asking him to compose a track for my PICO-8 game.

I have a rudimentary music understanding, and no experience using music composition software.

Is there a way to import music from a midi-like composition software into PICO-8? Or is there an easy way to transcribe music from a file to the PICO-8 cart? Ideally I would be able to import a midi file or similar, or could read the composition in a notation format and transcribe it to the PICO-8 music editor.

My best option so far is to have him learn and use the PICO-8 educational version, and then I copy the music from his cart to mine.

Let me know if you have any advice/suggestions!

Perhaps check out Denote?
