Anyone know where I can get one of these and maybe free?
But I think it ultimately requires registration.
The same guy has a freeware command line version:
Use CakeWalk Pro Audio
Anvil Studio is free and will also let you export 0 midi files
...just search at google for a link
I use Cakewalk Pro Audio 9.
Just open the file and save it as either type of file.
Right, but most people aren't going to purchase a 400$ application just to export to an olde format. Do what Alcozma said, and download Anvil Studio. http://www.anvilstudio.com/
sorry.. what changes between 0 type and type 1?

There are 3 different "Types" (sometimes called "Formats") of MIDI files. Type 0 files contain only one track, and all of the MIDI messages (ie, the entire performance) is placed in that one track, even if it represents many musical parts upon different MIDI channels. Type 1 files separate each musical part upon its own track. Both Type 0 and 1 store one "song", "pattern", or musical performance.

What's the third type???
MIDI Type 3
A MIDI file protocol can contain patterns, such as rhythm patterns or repeated measures. This protocol is rarely encountered as it requires special software to reproduce.
It's my understanding these are Midi Type 2 files. Extremely uncommon - I've never seen one and I've been knocking around midi for many years now, far more than I care to count.
Oh, you're right. My thinking was that it is the third type, so I typed 3. No, I have not seen them either.
Here's a freebie I found. You need to run midifile first to install a dll file and then use the miditype to set up the actual program.
Have fun. It converts to all styles. It's pretty small too.
