I'm trying to use TuxGuitar with a Chapman Stick, which, for those who don't know, is a 10-string instrument played with two-handed tapping and with a quite unusual tuning (see here: http://stick.com/instruments/tunings/10/classic/).
So I can setup the tuning without problem, even for the bass part which has inverted strings compared to a "normal" bass. Now the problems start when I try to actually use this tuning with a song.
As far as I can tell, there's no way to "import" a tuning from one song to another, so if I have a song, say, in a MIDI file, there's no way to apply the Stick tuning(s) in it, I have to redo everything each time, which is quite tedious. There seems to be a way to do the opposite, i.e have a "template" song with Stick tunings, then copy the measures from another song and paste them in the template. But it doesn't do at all what I want, since it looks like it's pasting the fingerings in the tab instead of the actual notes. Of course, with such a different tuning, this ends up with a song that doesn't make any sense.
In the latest TuxGuitar version, there are also preset tunings, but it seems these are hardcoded, and I didn't find a way to add my own.
Did I miss something? Is there any way to do what I want easily?
