: hello everyone

: keeping track of sounds (i.e. "where the heck did that
: patch for this song go?") and soforth. is there a way
: that this could be accomplished -- some small bits of
: data at the beginning of each MIDI file to give the
: specific patch information and perhaps other related
: things so that everything would be conveniently

If you use the preset patches only, you don't have to worry about
losing them, the sequencer will automatically store the
bank and patch numbers.
The problem is only the user bank, you may have changed
the patches, or use new ones. In this case the best way
to store patch info is SYSEX (System Exclusive).
Some sequencers (like Cakewalk) make this very simple and
easy, you can request SYSEX dumps from the synth, and save them
into the MIDI file. On other sequencers, you can
start the recording, and send the SYSEX data from
the keyboard. The STORE button will bring up several
