    Already there.  It's "midititle" though I think.

    Already done.

    I am not sure how common that issue is.  It's at least on the
    Solton/Ketron MS80 and MS40 but they are somewhat related.  But if it is
    not set at all, I think it reasonable to not send a title (likely
    needing a refactoring) or possibly use the filename (most convenient for
    me but not necessarily for others).

I think it's reasonable to use the filename, and if the title in the MIDI needs 
to be empty, the user can set it so.
