BM3 MIDI import problems
I've been trying to import MIDI files into BM3 with limited success over the last couple of days. Today, the Xequence MIDI export dropped and I've been trying to export a file out of Xequence and into BM3. Here's where it gets tricky:
I export the MIDI file out of Xequence with the "Export with track swing" and "Export with track delay" options off. I switch to BM3 and I import it into the Imports folder using Files. Then I drag the MIDI file into the Song view window and it works, except it drops in the separate tracks/instruments from Xequencer (Synth track, Bass track, Drums track, etc.) as beats in the piano roll of the Bank I had loaded. To be clear - the Bass line from Xequencer simply shows up in the Hi-Hat pad of the Bank I loaded and doesn't play the individual notes, instead each pattern from the arrangement shows up as a single note. Synth track is on the snare drum pad, etc.
Export the MIDI out of Xequence but I choose "Export only selected track" (I highlighted the notes on the Drums track). I follow the same process to bring it into BM3 as above, but when I drag and drop it onto the Song window NOTHING HAPPENS. It asks if I want to import with/without transposing, I choose without and then it just drops back to a blank song. WTF?!?!?!
I've tried innumerable combinations of these steps (only choosing "Export with track swing), or only "Export with track delay", both of those, neither of those, exporting track only while I've selected the instrument in Xequence, exporting track only with the actual notes highlighted, etc. ad nauseum) and nothing seems to work right.
I tried this previously with a MIDI export from Auria and it seemed to work just fine. Is Xequence the problem? Is it BM3? Still new to BM so I have no idea.
