I recorded a piece to MIDI in 3/4 time on my digital piano, but when I printed it out in MidiIllustrator, it was scored in 4/4 time. Why is that, and how do I change the time signature?

Generally speaking, information about time signature is stored in a MIDI file when the file is first created. MidiIllustrator can support and display any time signature used in a MIDI file. MidiIllustrator fully supports changes to the time signature. When no time signature is stored in the MIDI file, MidiIllustrator assumes that the piece is in 4:4 time. Since no time signature is being stored in the recorded piece, MidiIllustrator defaults to 4:4 for that piece during import. You can change this default using the Edit Time Signature Dialogue (Measures menu).
