There are several ways:

1. File/Open...
This will import the MIDI file into a new song.

2. Drag the MIDI file into the arrange window of an existing song.
This also creates a NEW song.

3. Use the Browser (Files tab).
The drop-down arrow by the MIDI file title can be used to select specific tracks in the MIDI file.
This also creates a NEW song.


I'm confused. I thought methods 2 and 3 imported the MIDI file into the EXISTING song. Have Presonus changed this in a recent version of Studio One?

You can also just drag and drop the MIDI file anywhere in the start page.

I found this on page 103 of the manual:
To import a MIDI file using the Browser, navigate to the desired file, as you would for an audio
file, and click-and-drag it into your Song. If the MIDI file is dragged to an empty space in the
Arrange view, a new Instrument Track will be created with that file placed on the Track at the
position to which it was dragged. If the file is dragged to an existing MIDI Track, the file will be
placed as a new Instrument Part on the Track, at the position to which it was dragged.


I tried this with a MIDI file exported from Pro Tools 11 - it creates a new song.
A commercial MIDI file was imported into the song correctly.

Thanks very much for the info.
The two MIDI files that I mentioned were quite different.

1. Pro Tools Export MIDI file
75KB
About 7 minutes long
Many tempo changes

2. Commercial MIDI file
23KB
Just over 4 minutes
Single tempo

Which folder in Windows should I preferably store my copied 50+ legacy MIDI files from a thumb drive so that they always appear in the Studio One browser, ready to click on and add to a new song?

You can put them anywhere and then add a new tab to the browser.

For example, open the browser and click the Files tab. Navigate (by expanding the Volumes entry) to the folder where the MIDI files are now. Click to highlight that folder, then right-click the FIles tab at the top. Click "New Tab From Here" and that folder will be added as a new tab.
