I’m on Windows 10. My goal is to have both Dorico and Cubase listen to my same MIDI keyboard. The example below isolates the problem down to just Dorico.
In LoopMidi I have one loopback port set up: “v-Keyboard” (for ‘virtual keyboard’). No other loopbacks.
In MidiOX | Options | Midi Devices I’ve selected one input: “My Keyboard” and one output: “v-Keyboard” . I’ve selected no other devices.
In MidoOX | View | Port Routings I’m routing “My Keyboard” ==> “v-Keyboard”. No other routes.
If I launch Cubase (and select “v-Keyboard” as an input Midi port in Studio | Studio Setup | MidiPorts), Cubase receives key presses.
However, in Dorico (on a fresh boot, and no other programs open):
- I create a new project (just to be sure I have a clean slate)
- In "Edit | Preferences | Play, “v-Keyboard” is the one and only input MIDI device selected. NOTE: it lists ‘v-Keyboard’ as ‘v-Keyboard’. Why the ‘’? Is that germane?
- Midi Input is of course enabled.
RESULT: Dorico doesn’t recognize keypresses. Indeed, the green midi indicator in the lower right does not flash on keypresses. (Yet, Midi-OX shows activity on both ‘My Keyboard’ and ‘v-Keyboard’)
If I disable ‘v-Keyboard’ and enable ‘My Keyboard’, Dorico works.
What am I missing? I’m grateful in advance for your assistance!
