If I want to make an arrangement from a Fronimo file I use Save As
to create a Midi file and then open it in Sibelius. The result needs dropping an octave and for some reason the instrument is given as Pedal Steel Guitar - and of course it needs quite a bit of editing to make a sensible arrangement.
I was thinking this would have something to do with the General midi
standard, but neither pedal steel nor lute are defined in it, so it must be that fronimo and sibelius extend the standard, each in their own way. And I guess that they use the same program number, in the case of fronimo for lute, in the case of sibelius for pedal steel.
