In this tutorial you will learn how to load and correct a midi file song that does not "sound" properly.
In fact, the problem is that some midi files have "program changes" at the beginning of some track that automatically select a non GM programs/patches (from bank A/B/C/D/E/F).
There are 4 steps to follow in order to correct the midi file.
Before beginning the tutorial, ensure you have loaded your midi file in your Krome sequencer. (MEDIA, LOAD, SELECT a *.mid file)

Press PAGE button and go to the track Edit page by following this :
Select the track you want to edit : Here TRACK 1...Then press the Track Edit Arrow to open the menu.

Here, filter the event you want to display : We only want to check "program change", so deselect others events.
Edit the program change event following this :
Put the G bank for a GM programs/sounds and g(d) for a drum track.
Go to the play menu and check !!!
Repeat this tutorial for all tracks (Go to Step 2 and select TRACK2, then TRACK 3...etc)
