Are you loading as a new project or a sound file? Load as a new project, this should pick up the midi info to determine instruments. :D

Hi,

Yes, you should try opening it as a project file. More specifically, open the MIDI file by clicking on the File menu and selecting Open Project.

it just loads midi file there is instrument info on file as it is a tune 1000.

For a second opinion to Eric I downloaded the midi file, used "open project" in the file dropdown and it plays perfectly. No instruments are listed in the track header but that could be something to do with the program the midi file was written on and the way Mixcraft reads the midi info, or if any track info is present in the file. If you right click the little keyboard it will direct you to the instruments where you can make changes track by track by solo'ing each track in turn. I already made improvements within a minuet or so, I always find Mixcraft does a great job of midi files, mostly unbeatable imho. The midi file and Mixcraft work fine here. :D

The right click thing only works when the loaded instrument has a gui. It won't show one that doesn't. The acoustic piano for example.
You would need to left click the piano icon to see what's loaded.

Hi,

You can click "Change Instrument," then click Show Details and look at which preset is selected for each track if you want to find out which instrument preset is which.
