I'm making separate announcement here since this little program might be
of help to people not using MMA (who might want to use this as a basis
for other conversions), as well as MMA users.
I've written a short Python program which parses Yamaha style files
(used by Yamaha synths for auto-rhythm/accomp.) to a format used by MMA.
We hope this will spur the development of additional libraries for MMA.
