I don't think that midi2ly is the problem. Midi files are not ment to
generate printed music. And esp. MIDI files with an acceptable sound
use a lot of tricks which look funny when converted back to printable
music. I found e.g. a MIDI-file of BWV1006 (Partita for violin solo
in E) whose first movement (Prelude) starts with a lot of 1/16th.
These 1/16th were distributed on more than one MIDI track (channel?)
improving the sound. But how should a MIDI to sheet music converter
detect that these tracks belong to one line of music?
