Import/Export module - this feature allows you to convert any style into a midifile format. This means that you can use all the advanced functions of your sequencer program to edit styles, as if they were regular songs in General MIDI (GM) standard.A style is a set of musical patterns that can be played by an arranger keyboard or a software program. A style typically consists of several parts, such as intro, verse, chorus, fill-in, ending, etc. Each part contains one or more tracks that play different instruments, such as drums, bass, guitar, piano, etc. A style can be customized by changing the tempo, key, volume, effects, and other parameters.
The Import/Export module is a tool that lets you convert styles into midifiles and vice versa. A midifile is a standard file format that stores musical data in a sequence of MIDI messages. A midifile can be played by any MIDI device or software program that supports the GM standard. The GM standard defines a common set of 128 instruments and 47 percussion sounds that can be used by any MIDI device or software program.
To use the Import/Export module, you need to select a style file and a midifile name. Then you can choose which parts of the style you want to export to the midifile. You can also select which tracks of the style you want to include in the midifile. The Import/Export module will then create a midifile that contains the selected parts and tracks of the style. You can also do the opposite process and import a midifile into a style file.The Import/Export module can help you to create more diverse and original styles by using the features of your sequencer program. For example, you can use your sequencer program to edit the notes, chords, rhythms, and dynamics of the midifile. You can also add effects, such as reverb, chorus, delay, etc. to enhance the sound quality of the midifile. You can also use your sequencer program to mix and match different parts and tracks from different styles and midifiles. This way, you can create new combinations and variations of musical patterns.
The Import/Export module can also help you to share your styles with other musicians and users. You can export your styles into midifiles and send them to your friends or upload them to online platforms. You can also import midifiles from other sources and convert them into styles. This way, you can access a large library of musical patterns and styles from different genres and artists.
The Import/Export module is a powerful and versatile tool that can expand your musical creativity and possibilities. By using the Import/Export module, you can turn any style into a midifile and any midifile into a style. You can also edit, modify, and customize your styles and midifiles using your sequencer program. You can also exchange your styles and midifiles with other users and enjoy a wide range of musical options.Here are some tips on how to use the Import/Export module effectively:
- Before exporting a style into a midifile, make sure that the style is compatible with the GM standard. Some styles may use custom instruments or sounds that are not available in the GM standard. In this case, you may need to change the instrument or sound of the track to match the GM standard. You can also use the Instrument Mapping feature to assign different instruments or sounds to different tracks of the style.
- After importing a midifile into a style, make sure that the style is compatible with your arranger keyboard or software program. Some midifiles may use MIDI messages or commands that are not supported by your arranger keyboard or software program. In this case, you may need to edit or delete the MIDI messages or commands that cause problems. You can also use the MIDI Filter feature to filter out unwanted MIDI messages or commands from the midifile.
- When editing a midifile using your sequencer program, make sure that you follow the structure and format of a style. A style typically has a fixed number of parts and tracks, and each part and track has a specific function and role. For example, a style usually has one intro part, one ending part, two fill-in parts, and four main parts. Each part usually has eight tracks, and each track usually plays a different instrument or sound. If you change the number of parts or tracks, or the function or role of each part or track, you may cause errors or glitches when playing the style on your arranger keyboard or software program.
- When mixing and matching different parts and tracks from different styles and midifiles, make sure that they are compatible and harmonious with each other. Some parts and tracks may have different tempos, keys, chords, rhythms, or dynamics that may clash or conflict with each other. In this case, you may need to adjust the tempo, key, chord, rhythm, or dynamic of each part or track to make them fit together. You can also use the Transpose feature to change the key of each part or track. You can also use the Quantize feature to align the notes of each part or track to a grid. 061ffe29dd
