Musescore will not recognize my MIDI Keyboard

• Jan 12, 2021 - 18:15

My name is Kira, and I have a Keystation 49 MK3 keyboard that plugs in to my computer via USB port, but when I go to preferences then IO then MIDI input, to make sure I can input notes with the keyboard on Musescore, the MIDI input drop down menu does not recognize my keyboard. Can anyone help?

Actually, I figured out how to fix that problem. Thanks for the help! I do have another question though... do you know if there's a way for me to just play and it will enter the notes as whatever I play them as? Or do I have to manually switch to a whole note if I am going to play a whole note?

You will generally get better results if you use a program designed for real-time MIDI recording - "sequencer", or "digital audio workstation" - to record your playing, then use its facilities to "quantize" the result (correct all the little rhythmic discrepancies that exist because you're not a robot), then save as a standard MIDI file, and import that into MuseScore.

But still, expecting to get readable sheet music for any but the most simple music (think mary had a little lamb played with one finger) is about as unrealistic as taking your phone into a move theater and asking Siri to transcribe the entire dialogue to produce a readable script.
