How to convert time-synced lyrics in Musixmatch to Simpel LRC
We have built a tool to convert time-synced lyrics into a format that is required for submission to LyricFind.
Why convert from Musixmatch to LRC?
This has to do with the DIY workflow that we suggest that artists / lyric curators follow, and you see this in all of our DIY work instructions.

Convert time-synced data from Musixmatch to the Simpel LRC format used by LyricFind
To open the tool: open the following link in a new browser tab: https://nzwaneveld.github.io/lyricformatter/mxm2lyricfind.html
How to use
Go to Musixmatch and open your synced lyrics in 'Edit'-mode, and go to the 'Synchronize' tab.
Use your mouse to select the text, starting with the '...' and go all the way up to the last line of the lyrics. Ignore the 'End of Song'-label.
Now drag the selected text to the browser window with the mxm2lyricfind converter, and drop the text into the large white text area.
This tool moves the timestamps in the proper format to the beginning of each line and removes the stanza tags used in Musixmatch.
The converted LRC formatted text is already copied into memory, so all you need to do is 'paste' it into the document where you want the LRC formatted lyrics.
If you are manually pasting lyrics into the converter, then you will also need to manually start the conversion. Start conversion by clicking on the 'Convert MXM > LRC' button in the bottom left corner of the browser window (you may need to scroll down the browser page to see this button).
