|AndrewM||hey everyone, im really having trouble with Ravi's sound editor. when i import a midi file into it, and save it as a sci sound resource, then load it into a game, all i can hear are the drums, does anyone know what i can do to hear all the instruments?? thanks in advance|
Go to 'Edit' and open the 'channel properties' box. Make sure you have the file set up to play on the same device(driver) you are using to play midi files.|
|AndrewM||i did that before, they are all set on general midi which is the driver i use but i still only hear drums|
Are you using gm.drv or mpumidi.drv? For imported MIDI files, the correct driver would be mpumidi.drv. It's available at http://www4.ncsu.edu/~rniyenga/sci/mpumidi.zip.|
The names are a little confusing. The gm.drv driver is for playing MT-32 tracks on a GM device. I called it that long before even thinking about how to deal with actual GM tracks.
|AndrewM||ahhh that did the trick, thanks a lot.|
