from the any-suggestions-are-welcome-dept. ;)

perhaps a bit offtopic and overkill, but my qtractor already can do this
although with some limitations.

the simple recipe is setting midi capture/export option to SMF format 1
(as is the default btw) and then you can import any of your existing
midi files (either format 0 or 1) into tracks and then export the
session into a new file which will be in the desired format, of course.

limitations are such there's no current support for tempo map, so your
resulting file will have a fixed and single tempo. ah, and the midi
export function is only available since last couple of weeks from
qtractor CVS :)...


just my 2cents
