Would it be possible to convert say a .ptb (Pro Tab) file or any music sheet style file to text data?

Edit: I found there is a export to ASCII feature on pro tab editor. Perhaps I could read the text file 7 lines at a time to parse the data?

Such as lets say the first note in the music is a quarter note D chord. That would convert to 1,10,001111

Rest = 0
Note = 1

1 = 0
1/2 = 1
1/4 = 10
1/8 = 11
1/16 = 100
1/32 = 101
