Unable to play a staff instrument live from MIDI keyboard or on-screen piano
Win 7/10. MS 3.3 (official)
There has been a change which affects users who want to play instruments from the virtual piano or an external MIDI keyboard:
- Open the attached score in MS 2.3.2. Don't press the playback button or click on any notes (important).
- Diplay the Piano, say.
- Click on a blank area of a measure in the timpani staff. Now click on the virtual piano keys.
- Repeat step 3 for each staff. In each case, you hear the instrument associated with that staff.
- Now do exactly the same with MS 3.2.3.
Expected result: Same behaviour as in MS 2.3.2.
Actual result: Only the instrument in the first staff (Timpani) responds. In order to play any of the other instruments (as in step 3 above) you first have to "activate" the staff by clicking on a note.
Is it possible to restore the 2.x behaviour?
