Midi compatibility

November 24, 2009 | 2:08 am

Whenever I attempt to read midi files from a certain Windows program in Max on my Macbook, I get an error message which says "filename.mid: sorry, I take single track files only." Can someone fill me in on what this is about? Much appreciated.

I’m talking about seq here, by the way.

The seq object only opens single-track ("format 0") MIDI files. It sounds like your files are format 1 (multi-track), which is the format most programs use these days. You can find freeware programs that convert format 1 files to format 0 files.
