When I play a Midi file made with the
software, the sounds are not the same. What has
Digital sounds used in the software do not exist anywhere else.
When you play your MIDI tune outside the software, you use the MIDI
device managed by the system. The sounds of the various instruments
may be different.
When exporting a score in MIDI format then
re-importing it, I do not obtain exactly the original score.
MIDI format is not dedicated to music notation, but to
exchange between electronic devices. Many pieces of information are
missing in the file, and therefore cannot be retrieved.
When importing some MIDI
files, right and left hand of the piano part appear on the same
staff. How to separate them?
Use "Staff>Split staff according to note..." option. You will
get two staves.
In some Midi files I import, notes are shifted
and note lengths are, one might say, bizarre. What is going
Some Midi files come from a "human" recording in
which notes are not struck perfectly on the beat and their lengths
are incorrect. You will have to quantize these files to display them
more clearly (see the chapter "Quantize"). Some MIDI files
are recorded without taking the metronome into account at all.These
will never display correctly, because their notes simply do not
match the beat of the tune.
How to set up quantizing
parameters when importing a MIDI file?
can determine whether a minimal quantize is applied automatically
to the loaded document, whether no quantize at all is applied, or
whether you want to configure it manually. This is done with the
"Midi" tab of Configuration>Global setup.
