Hello all,

I used to use Cakewalk on a small Windows partition for composing
work.  Now, I'm trying to take the midi files I'd exported from
Cakewalk and play them using rosegarden/fluidsynth/pmidi.

My songs sounds like a cacophony.  Things are so wrong - it sounds
truely horrible.

I downloaded some MIDI files from around the internet and they all
play normally.  Is is possible Cakewalk has some SysEx events in there
that pmidi/rosegarden are interpreting as notes?

Cause damn.  I didn't write this stuff!

have made a covenant with the devil to darken the spirit and to confine
man in the bonds of Hell."
