As per the many comments, items of feedback, and angry complaints I have received about the beta of the MIDI to mobileTunes 3 song converter, I have upgraded it with a plethora of new functionality and believe it's just about ready to come out of beta. I was inspired to do this by bug reports a few days ago of features that were very easily fixed, which then led me to tackle the more challenging problems. Among the things I have added to and changed about the converter:
Full integration into the Cemetech6 template system
Support for so-called "running status," which fixes a lot of the "unknown event" problems into which people were running
Better support for files that omit the Note Off events and use Note On on the same channel to indicate all notes off.
A clearer track visualization system
Complete automated handling of single channels that contain more than one simultaneous note
Automatically attempts to merge channels if there are more than four channels (or simultaneous notes) selected for conversion
Improved time signature handling, should now match oncalc output songs closely to their original MIDI tempo
Feel free to head to the converter, give it a try, and post bug reports in the attached topic.
