Rosegarden is displaying the MIDI channel numbers 0-15, while most (all?)
MIDI gear will display 1-16. Additionally, during recording most sequencers
use the MIDI channel 0 to mean 'listen on all channels'.
Shouldn't Rosegarden follow this convention and display the numbers 0 and

NOTE: Although the MIDI Status byte counts the 16 MIDI channels as numbers 0
to F (ie, 15), all MIDI gear (including computer software) displays a
channel number to the musician as 1 to 16. So, a Status byte sent on MIDI
channel 0 is considered to be on "channel 1" as far as the musician is
concerned. This discrepancy between the status byte's channel number, and
what channel the musician "believes" that a MIDI message is on, is accepted
because most humans start counting things from 1, rather than 0.
