Just a sample of a Music Roll Master.  It will create the Gcode file and Preamble header(safety) then you can create a punch code for each line to be punched.

0-1  Zero no hole , 1 hole

The program creates each line to be punched as a group driven by the G81 cycle with the locations following. Each line has a number (N1,etc)

You can see the Gcode created for each line and see a tool path for the positions.

Each punch position is also denoted by the Note it represents  (A2   A of the second octave).

It is just a start, Let me know if it is something you may want to try.

I found the music SCALE for the rolls and updated the screen.  I also updated the Gcode output to match the scale.

There are other ways to do this as well if this does not work out for you.

Have downloaded latest version and am testing it.
How do you vary the distance between notes from the edge of the roll as it seems to be incremental at one inch?
On my music organ it goes 10mm,9mm,9mm,9,and then 6 for the rest of the 20 notes.
Returning to mach 3 button is problematical.
There will be more!!!!

The step over distance for each note on the scale is set by code it can be changed to anything you want.

The return to mach is a standard CB call. What is it doing there?

It hangs up on generating toolpath before it returns to Mach 3.
