Default setting up instrument sound names for MIDI keyboard

Version 0.942 of MidiNotate Musician and Composer introduces new options that should make it easier to set up instrument sound names for your MIDI keyboard or other MIDI output device.

You can import the bank, patch, and drum note names for a device from a Cakewalk INS file or a Notation Software MDD file. There used to be one way to do that, using the Import Device command in the Device menu of the MIDI Device Configuration window. The procedure was somewhat complicated. You had import the INS or MDD file, and then "connect" the imported device to the MIDI Out port. Starting with version 0.942, when you import the device, it will be immediately connected to a MIDI Out port that you choose.

There is now also a second more convenient way to import the instrument sound names from an INS or MDD file. Use the Quick MIDI Device Setup command in the Setup menu, and use the Import Sound Names option in the Quick MIDI Device Setup dialog box.

Please let me know whether you find it easy or not to set up the instrument sound names for your MIDI keyboard or other playback device.

Cheers
-- Mark (the developer)
