MIDI Recording windows allow you to record music with MIDI instruments and transcribe the recorded music to a score. To open a MIDI Recording window, choose New MIDI Recording from the File menu.
The MIDI Recording window consists of a piano roll-style workspace and a toolbar. The toolbar contains the controls for tempo, tuning, the recording instrument and rhythm settings, as well as record control buttons.
The piano roll is a simplified 2-dimensional representation of a recording, with pitch as the vertical dimension and each MIDI key shown as a row, and time as the horizontal dimension.
Recorded notes appear as red rectangles that can be manipulated by dragging.
Before you begin, it is recommended that you set up MIDI input and create any microtonal key mappings you may need.
