Getting A Melody From A Midi File

In this section I'll go over the steps to extract a melody from a midi file and put it in the melody track of Band In A Box. From time to time, I'll get a midi file that has a melody in it and when I have BIAB bring it in and figure out the chords for me, occasionaly it will not bring in the melody as well. This just gets my dander up like you wouldn't believe. Now as I said before I'm about the laziest person there is and I'm not about to create a melody unless I have to and why should I if one already exsists in the file to begin with. Lets get started.
