While the MIDI file format is very flexible and extensive, it cannot store the following parameters that are part of a standard project file:When you save a project to a Standard MIDI file, most of these parameters are applied to the individual events. For instance, if you have assigned track 1 to channel 10 in the Track view, Cakewalk will write the MIDI file so that every event on track 1 has a channel number of 10. When you subsequently load the MIDI file all of those Track view parameters will have vanished. But the music will sound the same, because Cakewalk has made these changes to the events themselves.
1. In the Track view, make a time selection to select the range that you want to export, or clear the selection (Edit > Select > None) to export the entire project.
2. Choose File > Export > Standard MIDI File to open the Save Copy dialog box. The project must contain MIDI data to make the command available.
5. Under Save as type, select the desired MIDI file format:
MIDI Format 0. Standard MIDI File that has all channels merged into one track.
MIDI Format 1. Standard MIDI File that keeps each channel on a separate track.
Riff MIDI Format 0. Riff MIDI File of Format 0.
Riff MIDI Format 1. Riff MIDI File of Format 1.
2. Go to File > Export > Standard MIDI File to open the Save Copy dialog box.
