i might try, since ardour splits the tracks up, and you can change patches
in other applications, simply saving out each seperate track that ardour
gave me, and open them in qtractor, or whatever appplication im more
comfortable using..

you mean, you cant export midi from lmms..
https://github.com/LMMS/lmms/issues/699 is where i would start following
that, but i would ask, whats the goal of this project?

whats the plan? are you just trying to hear the thing? if so, it sounds
like, you can separate the tracks in ardour, and use lmms to set sounds,
and then, save as audio, and have it "listenable", while still maintaining
your current midi file.
