I'm trying to get the piano in my song to export to separate midi tracks but whenever I export to midi it puts it all on one midi track is there a way to define this cause I never used to have this issue.

Please confirm whether you mean MIDI tracks or MIDI channels (if you are not aware of the difference, you probably mean MIDI channel). Every instrument has its own MIDI track and that cannot be changed, but may be played on more than one MIDI channel depending on whether you choose a fixed channel or "any" channel in MIDI export.

I'm talking about getting one exporting one module instrument to multiple MIDI tracks; for example, if you have three piano notes playing and you want each sequence of notes (that would be each note on its own channel in the module) to be exported as multiple separate MIDI tracks instead of one.

That cannot be changed, however you could export the module by using the "MIDI channel: any" mode for that instrument,  take your favourite MIDI editor and split the individual MIDI channels into separate MIDI tracks.
