abc2score - A Freeware Application
By John Layton
Screenshot of the abc2score program
This is abc2score's second incarnation.The first disappeared when my website went down and I simultaneously lost the coding, which was a bitter blow.
So during the quarantine of Spring 2020 I sat at my computer and rewrote the program in its entirety. This is the 32 bit version and hopefully before long there will a 64 bit version. It is cross platform and should work on Linux as well as Windows.
The program can handle very large abc files, although I have broken down my original Big.abc file into smaller manageable packets and these files are included in the zipped folder as well as others I have collected over the years.
DOWNLOAD abc2score zipped file
After downloading the abc2score zip file unzip the software and drag the unzipped abc2score folder to wherever you like. I have placed mine in the path "C:\abc2score".
All the files and executives you need for abc2score to work are included in this folder, excluding Ghostscript which you can download below. Install it in the normal way. Also you might want to create a shortcut(right click on the executive file and then click 'create shortcut' on the drop down menu).Once created the shortcut can then be dragged to your desktop for ease of use.
You are now ready to begin using the program. Full operating instructions are provided in the help file.
Updated version of abc2score (August 5th 2020), which includes a new function for deleting a tune and a few minor fixes. Download this if you downloaded the zip file before August 2020. Drag the exe file to wherever you have your abc2score folder and overwrite the original file.
DOWNLOAD abc2score update
If you downloaded this program a while ago you may have been missing the midi instrument pdf file. DOWNLOAD the pdf file and add it to the abc2score folder.
