    Default Instrument mapping for midi export

    Hi!

    A nice feature would be to be able to chose the instrument mapping when exporting to a MIDI file. For example to chose that the first track should use General MIDI instrument number 18 rather than what was used by iReal Pro player.

    It would be particularly useful to be able to chose a given GM Drum Kit. Because when the MIDI is exported, it maps on GM Standard Drum Kit, which is not that good for jazz...

    Hope you'll take this into consideration!

    Best Regards.

    Good point. It doesn’t sound like this feature is coming, though it’d be very useful.

    The drums are the trickiest. GM would help… as would some kind of drum plugin.
    In the meantime, we could probably make our own drumkits by assigning the correct sounds to the notes played.
