Adding Notes Using Your Music (MIDI) Keyboard

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

If you have a music (MIDI) keyboard connected to your computer, there are two general ways you can use it to add notes:

1.Record your performance of the notes on the music keyboard in real-time, or perhaps at a slower tempo.
2.Use your music keyboard as a natural way to select pitches of notes or chords as you insert them one-by-one into the score.  This is called Step-Time Recording.
3.Step-Time Recording offers an especially quick way to enter notes if you use it together with the Sequential Note Method.


These three methods of adding notes using your music (MIDI) keyboard are described in the topics that follow.
