MIDI ENTRY

 

To start the MIDI input into your score file, select the command MIDI Entry from the Tools menu. When MIDI Entry is ON, the Listener echo bar will change to orange:

Now you know the MIDI Entry is ON. Depending on the position of the pitch-bend wheel and the modulation wheel as well as the position of the sustain pedal the colour of the Listener echo bar will change.

 

To make the MIDI Entry as functional as possible there are a number of commands that will increase the speed of your work without the need to move away form your MIDI keyboard.

 

Every entry is octave independent, except the pitch entry.

	4.	PB-UpH then E               => (q c4 mp)
	5.	Enter e4                    => (q c4 mp e4)
	6.	PB-DnH then C               => (q c4 mp e4 stacc)
	7.	Enter g4                    => (q c4 mp e4 stacc g4)
	8.	PB-UpH then Eb              => (q c4 mp e4 stacc g4 p)
	9.	PB-DnH then Eb              => (q c4 mp e4 stacc g4 p fermata)
	10.	PB-DnH then Gs + sustain    => (q c4 mp e4 stacc g4 p fermata+trem)

(q c4 mp e4 stacc g4 p fermata+trem 3q c4 eb4 fs4)

	1.	Modulation wheel up then C  => ()
	2.	PB-UpF then E               => (q)
