Assigning Midi Instruments for imported MIDI songs

Hi, when a MIDI song is imported (opened) in Ableton Live, the tracks get loaded but no instruments are assigned. Is there a way to know which instruments were used to create the original MIDI songs (and their presets) so we can assign the same (of course if they are available). Thanks!

    the whole reason of importing midi files is that you can play a melody, but assign any instrument you want to it. If you want to get the exact same instrument: use audio.

    If not, just assign an instrument that you like.
