6 MIDI import issues
1) open attached 12T-trimmed1.mid
2) playback, notice that it was playing back with the ties problem (see issue David created for me).
*3) notice the score shows "Trombone" and "Violin", but it was both played using default (piano), i.e. SF instruments not being used.
4) File > Parts, New, click the 2 instruments, create part, OK. Click the new tab created. Playback. Now it is using the actual SF instruments!
*5) The staff labeled "Trombone" sounds like trombone. Don't get too excited that the staff labeled "Violin" sounded like piano. Check the MIDI file itself and you'll notice that actually it IS a piano track! In other words, MIDI import got the words "Violin" incorrectly from the MIDI file. (Background: this MIDI was created by Sibelius, which mangles MIDI data badly -- the order of the instruments could be different from the order of the text/tracks...)
*6) Notice that it was created with a Treble Staff and not Grand Staff. That's the case even when the MIDI import reads it as text "Piano" and identify playback with piano (with a longer piece).
*7) Notice the Violin score has a different key signature from the Trombone staff. With a longer piece with 5 instruments, most of the instruments have different key signature! That's very confusing when they are not transpositional instrument. (As a side note, this is a dodecaphonic piece with all 12 notes occur. No key signature was specified in the original score.)
*8) The composer is picked up, but not the title of the piece. The composer is put in a weird location on the score.
*9) There is no double bar at the end.
10) Save the score as .mscz. Close all scores/parts. Open the saved mcsz. Playback. Notice the playback instruments are now correct. This shows item 3 issue was caused by MIDI import not initializing instruments. All the other issues noted previously remain.
The 6 issues are marked with *. I think *8 may have been reported by someone before, and obviously workaround is possible, so it is low priority for me. Item 2 has no * as it was reported already. Sorry I first reported the issues on the forums as I was not aware of this issue tracker as a newbie. Thanks for listening and a great program!
