M50 sequencer ﬁle formats
The M50 sequencer supports both the proprietary M50 Song
format, and Standard MIDI Files.
If you like, you can convert data between the two formats,
simply by loading the data in one format and then saving it
in the other.
For details, please see "Save to Standard MIDI File" on
page 268, and "Save SEQ" on page 268.

compatibility with other sequencers. Note that some M50-
speciﬁc data may not be maintained when in SMF ﬁles.

including XG or GS data. For details, please see "System
