Default where's the MIDI file?

I just did a project which now contains a wav file on one track and a MIDI file on another track. I saved everything to the same folder. In that folder, I now have the wav file, a reapeak file for that wav file, the project file and the backup project file. But where's the MIDI file? Isn't MIDI saved to its own file like everything else?

The MIDI-data is stored in the .rpp file unless you choose "Create new MIDI items as:"...".MID files" in the preferences at "Options -> Preferences -> Media -> MIDI". However, I don't know whether those files are created if you simply load the project into Reaper and save it again. It might be necessary to render every MIDI item as new take and delete the original. But as I say: Dunno about that.

Thanks, that's useful. I'll use what you've said to explore and experiment and figure it out. Yeah, that's where Audition stores it as well - in the project/session file. Seems counterintuitive to me, but what do I know?

...And therefore you have the option to store them as separate files.

But you also can export MIDI from your project. Select "File -> Export project MIDI..." (haven't thought about this at first.)

Each audio track/clip is saved as a separate file. Why not the same with MIDI files? Not a suggestion or request, just asking.

Hey dobro, personally I like the way the midi is saved with the RPP file, Sonar did the same and I'm not sure what advantage it would be to do it any other way. The only advantage for midi files is to transport to other programs which can be done easily by just saveing the midi tracks as midi files.
