: : I created a midi file via my electric piano. I e-mailed it to someone. When they play it via Windows Media Player, the opening notes sound like a piano, but the rest sounds like some Chinese glockenspiel.

: Weird! For some reason the electric piano must have inserted a patch change -- I don't think it'll be a problem specific to Windows Media Player; maybe your e.p. isn't completely General-MIDI compliant. You need to open the file in a sequencer (if you don't have one, jazz++ from is a good program) and make sure that each channel has the patch to set to #0 (grand piano), and that there aren't any patch change events elsewhere in the sequence.

Thanks - I downloaded jazz++ and though I seem to be changing the patches, the sound doesn't change. Would you mind taking a quick look at the file ? It'd be much appreciated.
