Understanding MIDI export results
« on: September 01, 2018, 22:31:36 »

I want to ask why when in MPT is for example D6 note but after export to MIDI is there "D5"?

I can see it there:

Can it be somewhat synchronized?

OpenMPT uses a notation that is different from common MIDI note names. This is because OpenMPT is not a MIDI software and has its roots in Impulse Tracker, which has a note range from C-0 to B-9. If we were going to use MIDI note names, C-0 would suddenly be C--1, i.e. the octave would be negative.
