Hi

I have a few hundred type 1 midi files that I need to convert to type 0, is there a nice low effort zero cost method anyone can suggest? I have searched for an online method and through the Apple store and only found one Mac app so far, is there anything simple for Linux that I can use? I have no access to a Windows comp.

Thanks.
