Arduino Floppy Music: Random .mid doesn't work properly Answered

Hello :)

I use a Arduino Mega  2560 and 3 floppy drives. If I start one of the example songs then the 3 floppy drives work.
But if I convert a random song in .mid and play it only the first floppy drive will work...

I changed same settings ine the MoppyDesk but it didn't work.

Can you help me?

Dunno but 3 floppy drives sounds like 3 different midi channels. What ever you used to convert, say an audio file to midi, probably defaulted to a single midi channel and will only play as such. An original midi production will have the channels broken out like your studio multitrack recording.
