    Hi everyone, i've been making midis in cubase for 4 months or so.. however, every time i export my work to midi, it doesnt retain any of the instrument settings, everything except the drums are defaulted to piano.
    I am saving them as type 1.
    So at the moment I am using Sound Studio Pro 2 to assign the instruments to the midi.
    Does anyone know why cubase does this, or is it just me?
    Thanks.
    Cal

    when you are actuall writing the midi information for a particular channel, what you do is specify what program number you want
    the midi to be played on for that channel.

    That information is actuall midi and is saved in the midi file.

    Open up a general midi 2 (standard midi file) in cubase by going
    file, import midi file.

    Now assign all the channels to whatever general midi plugin you
    are using ( sound studio pro 2 in your case)

    check out one of the parts that isn't midi program 1(always piano)
    at the start of the midi file is this program information.

    use the black menu box that is set on velocity to change what
    you see in the controller lane (under the piano roll screen)

    look for the midi program information there somewhere and see how they did it.

    hope this helps coz its hard to explain - I'm not at my workstation

    Thanks man,
    It definately helped... i never realized that program change option was there.
    Isnt there a way i can use the Midi Device Setup to automatically link it to the GM voice bank. I've tried setting up something or other, but it still doesnt seem to work.
    I know its hard to explain without having the pc in front of you, but thanks.
