Screen is continuously changing when playing and the vu-meters are hidden during the rests. The time they are hidden/visible is certainly system dependant, so I'm not surprised we don't see exactly the same thing.

You may give a try to FluidSynth which usually makes a better sound than Timidity: - Download some GM sound font (http://www.ntonyx.com/soft/32MbGMStereo.sf2 is a good one). - Start FluidSynth in place of Timidity: fluidsynth -sij /somewhere/32MbGMStereo.sf2 & - In RG studio, connect the MIDI device to the fluidsynth port > > -So how about it, should not one _bug report/fix then the original files, > if they are against standard?

And, yes I am total thus limited newbie both > for music and music software. The bug probably was in the tools used to create the 117-1.mid file. It's certainly not so common, here are three other MIDI fifth symphony versions with the right instruments: http://www.kunstderfuge.com/beethoven/variae.htm BTW there is something which looks like a RG bug here: - Start a new RG session - Import a MIDI file with various GM instruments - Play it on some GM synth ==> all the tracks are sounding like piano (i.e. program #1) There is a workaround to hear the correct instruments: save the composition in a RG file then reload it. I'll write a ticket about it. > > -Regarding a rg-tutorial: This turns out to be a tutorial not to "import > midis with more then 16 instruments/programs and about the usage of banks", > but one about importing "broken, instrument index shifted midi files", > maybe this could be of good use, if that is a common, a faq issue. But for > a real "more than 16 instrument tutorial use case", one needed such a midi > file, does not one? I started writing this stuff following Ted's remark that MIDI only supports 16 channels. I was a bit too quick as I only noticed later that the instruments were not so many. RG compositions needing more then 16 programs probably are scarce. Moreover, I presume that a MIDI file can't use more than 16 instruments. > > - Regarding a scripting interface: That should be topic of another thread. > But I wish it really bad.

That's an old topic: https://sourceforge.net/p/rosegarden/mailman/rosegarden-user/thread/45feaa13.5020...@riquer.eu.org/ There is a page about it in the wiki: http://www.rosegardenmusic.com/wiki/dev:ramblings_about_scripting I'm afraid RG has even fewer developpers it had when this thread was written and none of them has a lot of time. > > -Did not follow step4; but downloaded your rg file, which anyway functioned > without further configuring.

I presume to give a step by step description of how to set them up is not really needed. Yves
