[ddots-l] Re: problem with midi file

What's up ya'll coming out real quick! I've followed the directions on saving a song on the Motif E.S and saved it as a standard did file! I then put my smart media card in my p.c. card reader and open that particular midi file within Sonar 4! It didn't play right with the right sounds the first time I did it, but it played right the second time with the right sounds of instruments and stuff! So when I tried it a third time with a different song made on the mo, when I opened it up as a midi file in sonar it still didn't play right! What the heck am aI doing wrong! I be following the directions to the tee! Holla back anyone!
What Da Hzzy!

OK Omar, let's do this.  The following recommendation also applies to your
other MIDI file problem...

You may want to recreate your MIDI file before loading them into the Motif
ES. By that I mean the following--

1. Start a brand new sonar file with only 16 tracks (1 - 16) and chn 1 - 16
assigned to them respectively.
2. Use the event filter to only copy NOTES from each of your old midi tracks
onto their corresponding tracks in the brand new sonar file you just
created. It's important to filter out just the notes for copying and
pasting.
3. Do your bank and patch assignment and any other settings you wish for
each track in your new sonar file manually.
4. Be sure to combine all the note events from your old drum tracks onto
track 10 (chn 10) in your new sonar file.
5. In the end their should only be no more than 16 tracks in your new sonar
file with all drums on trk 10 chn 10.
6. Save your new file as both sonar and midi 1.
7. Open them and make sure that each format is playing back just the way you
like it.
8. Now you can load the midi 1 format file into the Motif es.
Try that and let us know. If things still don't work, I'll be interested in
seeing the midi file myself.


Good luck,

Nicaise D

I pasted them through Sonar.

Did you paste those events in Sonar or on the Motif?

Thanks Nicaise and Kevin for your help. When you say I should consider splitting the drums between tracks 10 and 11, I assume you mean copy the events from tracks 17-30 and paste them into 10 and 11? If so, I have tried that and track 10 does not seem to be playing the events from tracks 17-30. Sorry about my lack of experience with this, but this is the first time i've had to work with a file with more than 16 tracks.

Thanks again for your help.
