Converter from BASIC "Play" statement to MIDI files (Announce)

Some time ago appeared on the FreeBasic forum a concept of source which can convert the music strings from the "Play" statement into MIDI files.
https://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=26753

I rewrote this source into pascal and extended the capabilities a bit and the result is here:

It is still more a kind of demo than very serious program but it still may be very handy for you if you want to quickly convert simple melody into MIDI.

Thanks, for sharing. That's a neat utility. I'm going to try it out on some old BASIC songs I've got kicking around since the '80s.
