BK9 Question: If I take a BK9 midi file in which I have 'frozen data' and edit the file in (e.g.) Cubase, is it OK to copy the 'sequencer specific' info from one midi file to another midi file? This could save me some time for working on a large number of files. Or, on the other hand, is that info very specific to song it was created in?

I've often wondered about that one.

I think as long as you think carefully about what gets converted during a 'freeze' you can use the idea. The problem is, some data (things like transposes, velocity offsets, stuff like that) actually changes the data of the file itself. Other data (things like MFX settings, drum edits, EQ changes) get stored as sys-ex, which ought to be copyable between sequences.

I think probably the only way to figure it out is to experiment...
