Devices are not saved, they are part of the configuration. Named
channels (inputs and outputs) are supposed to be saved; could you
check that this is actually the case?

Indeed, filters are applied on the input only. You could use
tevmap, to modify events in the current selection, example:

tevmap {any bass} {any piano}

will change all bass events into piano events. Just check that you
have the latest midish snapshot (a bug just fixed).
