I just upgraded from Mint 17 to 18 and am having a significant problem playing .mid files. Using the same organ, same MIDI Channel Assignments and exact same MIDI File, the new built-in player no longer will play the Pedal Division.

PS - Thank you Martin for getting Grand Orgue setup instructions together for LINUX Mint 18.

Are the MIDI files GO recordings (played back on the same or different sampleset)?

Exact same sampleset -Piotr Grabowski's Giubiasco organ, with all devices and channel assignments exactly the same.

I loaded in Widor's Tocatta, however, and the Pedal division played in that case.

Maybe I have to use and external player?

The GO internal MIDI player had always played (on a two manual organ) the pedals from channel 3 [for non-GO MIDI recordings]. Before 2205, events would have been matched manual assignments too - yielding to playing the pedal from two channels.

GO MIDI recordings are different, because the various GO sysex adapt the MIDI matching.

PS: If you are using an external MIDI player, please make sure, that it creates a (virtual) MIDI port, GO can connect to.
