Which types of MIDI messages to remote control Musescore?

• Mar 1, 2016 - 10:27

I have a MIDI controller and I would like to assign buttons/pads to remote control Musescore. Can I assign only note messages or is it possible to use other MIDI control types? Maybe it's more correct to speak of SysEx commands, I'm not an expert.


By looking in the source code for CoreAudio driver (Mac OSX) I can tell that only "Note On", "Note Off" and "Control Change" messages are handled. Messages can be assigned for another midi commands though. In "Program Change" messages with "Control Change" trail are handled only the latter ones. The remote midi handling for ALSA and Jack look the similar. I tried to send midi under Jack driver but had troubles with making it run properly under Sierra 10.12.6 (16G29) and I ended giving up.
