              Outputs to stdout if file is  ‘-’.  When  outputting  to  stdout

       -w or --ignore-wrong-track

              Ignore MIDI events on the wrong channel instead of exiting.

       -t n or --tuplet-factor n

              An additional factor for files with odd note lengths, to prevent

       Does not handle SMTPE style tempo events.

       Does  not  handle  changes  of  tempo/time_sig/key  if  these  are on a
       separate tempo track.
