As mentioned above, A SMUS score can also ask for MIDI instruments. This is done by putting the MIDI channel and preset numbers in an INS1 chunk with the instrument name. Some programs will honor these requests while others will just find instruments by name. MIDI Recorder and sequencer programs may simply transcribe the MIDI channel and preset commands in a recording session. For this purpose, set-MIDI-channel and set-MIDI-preset events can be embedded in a SMUS score's tracks. Most programs should ignore these events. An editor program that wants to exchange scores with such programs should recognize these events. It should let the user change them to the more general set-instrument events.
