To remove patches from a downloaded MIDI file...

1. Switch to Piano Roll Mode.

2. Make sure that #2 (View/Edit) is set to "Program and #1 (Channels) is set to "ALL." These are shown on the upper image below. If a patch is present in the file, it will appear in the region labelled #3.

3. As shown on the lower image (#1), hover the mouse over the patch name.

4. Right-click.

5. Select "Select all graphic events" from the pop-up menu.

6. Select "Delete selected events."

Now save the BIAB with a slightly varied name. Doing this will allow you to reload the original file should you need to.

Regards,
Noel

I am not a big user of MIDI files from the internet, but in the past I have used the event editor to cleanup unwanted "stuff"

First I opened the file using <Open Special>, then using the Notation mode, I used the <Event Editor> (#)

All event types are shown, but the filter can be used to select the specific event type you are looking for.

Does this work for you?

Hi Dave,

That works too.

Until you mentioned it, I've never accessed this editor via the #-button in Notation Mode. I've always gone through the "Melody | Edit Melody Track | Step Edit Melody". (It's definitely much easier to use the #-button in Notation mode.)

Regards,
Noel

#-button?

I do it like you, Noel, using the Step Edit function. I’ll have to look at this.

I also use it to edit note lyrics. As they are a midi event loosely attached to a note event, it's easy to delete then, or adjust their placement. You can move them away from their notes to reduce space between words or delete them if they are no longer associated with the note.
Very versatile.

RealTracks Artist Pat Martino

We are saddened to hear of the passing of jazz guitar legend Pat Martino yesterday.

Pat was part of our RealTracks Artist "Jazz Pollwinners 2" series in 2014. You can learn about Pat and listen to his RealTracks contribution here.

Pat had been playing guitar since he was just 12 years old, and devoted himself to music in grade ten. On top of years of performing (he began playing professionally in 1961), Pat received many awards for his playing, including the "Jazz Legacy" Award in 2016 presented by Pennsylvania State Senator Vincent Hughes and his wife Sheryl Lee Ralph-Hughes.

Learn even more about Pat Martino when you visit his website, http://www.patmartino.com/.
