Instant crash when importing MIDI file (example provided)

• Apr 22, 2021 - 11:46

Hi, I can't get Musescore (last revision, OS: macOS 10.16, Arch.: x86_64, MuseScore version (64-bit):, revision: 3224f34) to open some MIDI files produced by Ableton Live (Ableton Live 11.0.2 Suite, last build). It instantly crashes. Enclosed file shows an example of something played on a piano, single track, which makes Musescore instantly crash, either on load if I double click it from file manager or when I import it from menu.

I hate to bring this up, but OP admits that the file is broken from the start. The problem he reports is not that he can't play or import it, but that it causes a crash.

I didn't "admit anything from the start". I report a problem, which can be caused either by Musescore or by Ableton Live. I've not read MIDI standard, so I believe you if you say it's Ableton.

Besides, I thought exception handling was considered a good practice. Anyway, I will try to manually sort this file out and to report the bug to Ableton.
