hi dave im writing a type 1 file with two tracks, track 0 holds stuff
like tempo, keysig, optional channel tuning data from the microtuning
menu, optional program changes from the Instruments.... settings.
track 1 holds user's event data.
i think the issue is that Im writing a (legal) midi file using the
(legal) millisecond format, eg:
midifile->setSmpteTimeFormat(25, 40); // set to 1 msec resolution
and i guess most apps wont handle this.
so i think ill change the default format back to beats like it was in
cm2: e.g. divisions-per-quarter (480) instead of smpte time and a file
tempo of 60bpm.
regardless ive just added a new dialog that lets you twiddle all this
in Audio->MidiOut>Midifile Settings...
