Summary0007071: MIDI tracks not available for stem export
DescriptionMIDI tracks aren't available in the list of tracks offered for stem export (they're specifically excluded, in fact). Being able to render MIDI tracks without faffing around with extra buses would be quite handy.
Additional InformationI made a half-baked trivial patch to make this work: it works exporting audio outputs from MIDI tracks, but obviously exports nothing when exporting region contents of MIDI tracks. I'm not sure what should happen in that case: I imagine implementing a full-blown MIDI export would be a non-trivial task, but it feels a bit weird to have tracks visible in the stem export dialogue that will only be exported when 'track outputs' is selected.
TagsNo tags attached.

Colin - do you think we should still apply this patch?

The patch is definitely no more than half-baked: it'll allow MIDI tracks to be selected in the stem export dialogue even if 'Apply track/bus processing' isn't ticked, but then the export won't produce anything for those tracks. Ideally, it should export a MIDI file in that case. Otherwise, at least it should not allow MIDI tracks to be selected for an export that wouldn't produce an audio file.

I toyed with the idea of refreshing the list of tracks when 'Apply track/bus processing' is toggled, so that MIDI tracks would only appear when it's enabled, but I seem to remember finding some annoying snag with that scheme: I think it was that all tracks became unselected for export when the list is refreshed, but I can't remember for sure: it was a long time ago...
