MIDI export saves wrong instruments

• Jan 12, 2019 - 17:33

if I export my music to a midi file in musescore then the wrong instruments are saved to it. The midi then sounds very different, even with the correct soundfont loaded. Why is that?
Even if I reimport it to musescore the instruments are not as configured them before the export.

That's how it should sound: https://www.dropbox.com/s/qqmfbbhb908228g/Elemental_Stars.mp3?dl=0
Here is the MIDI: https://www.dropbox.com/s/ikdan6gl6yfqgzt/Elemental_Stars.mid?dl=0

The MIDI was created with the default soundofnt of musescore.


MIDI files do not have any sound of their own, the sounds you hear when you play a MIDI file depend on the soundfont used by the program that plays that MIDI file. If I load your MIDI file into MuseScore and play it, then it sounds just like your MP3. But if you try loading it into any other program to play, then you will hear the sounds of that other program. That is the nature of MIDI - it doesn't contain sounds, on instructions on what notes to play.
