So I am finished with my drum chart and I was exporting it in Magma and it gives me the following error.


ERROR: MIDI Compiler: (MIDI FILE): Cannot parse MIDI file; one or more MIDI tracks may be corrupt (usually due to missing or extraneous track name events)

ERROR: MIDI Compiler: (MIDI FILE): Could not find MIDI track authored for drum, possibly due to incorrect track name event.


What do I do to fix this?? I have tried everything and have no clue what to do.

Maybe send the MIDI through MIDI cleaner from C3 con tools. That should fix the parse error. In reaper, double click the PART DRUM track. Try to find CC event PART DRUMS and drag the CC event to the beginning of the MIDI. If there is no PART DRUMS event, create one by double clicking the CC event area and typing in "PART DRUMS" without the quotations.

Should look something like this, for reference. Make sure your drum track wasn't muted before you exported the MIDI track too, as this will completely omit it from the combined MIDI. If you didn't intend to have drums in your song, both mute it before exporting and uncheck the track in Magma.
