QuickScore Elite How To

How to enter notes in step time

Getting Started  Tutorials  Manual  MIDI and Audio

Click on the step entry button in the main control area to enable or disable step entry from a MIDI keyboard. When the step entry button is highlighted, step entry is enabled. Step entry is a very useful way to enter music. Notes played on the keyboard will be entered at the cursor point in the active window. The duration of the notes entered is the duration value set in the durations palette. After a note is entered using step entry, the cursor moves ahead by the duration value. Step entry always merges the entered note with the notes already in your track. You can step enter a chord, by playing all the notes of the chord at once on your MIDI keyboard. Make sure you play the notes all at the same time and then wait a half second or so to play the next note or chord, so that successive notes or chords do not end up at the same time. (QuickScore Elite needs a gap between notes to distinguish them from imperfectly played chords.)
