I've just used Rosegarden to export a project to a standard MIDI file for use with my hardware MIDI file player.
Unfortunately when the file was exported Rosegarden has inserted MIDI program change messages at the start of each track - even though I carefully made sure that none of the tracks had either the "Bank" or "Program" checkboxes checked in the "Instrument Parameters" box.
Even worse each track now has a bank of "0" and an instrument of "0" which makes the resulting MIDI file unusable !
I would therefore like to see the MIDI file export functionality improved so that the user can decide whether to include program changes, pan & volume messages for each track.
Currently I have to use a command line MIDI to CSV tool, then edit out the program change messages, then use a CSV to MIDI tool to restore a usable MIDI file which is tedious to say the least !
