Has anyone else experienced this (described below)? This is a new behavior for me since upgrading to D3. This occurs once or twice during the course of a typical workday. Restarting Dorico corrects the issue.
I have a Nectar Impact LX49 on my desk which I use to input note pitches – my computer numeric keys provide the duration values. I’ve never had a problem with this entry method for a year in Dorico. Since D3 however, I’ve found occasionally (once or twice a day), in the middle of working, my midi-device is suddenly unable to enter notes. Now I know what you’re thinking, but here’s the catch: playing a key on my midi keyboard still ADVANCES THE CURSOR in write mode, but no notes are placed on the staff. Additionally, I CAN STILL HEAR THE NOTES PLAYED AUDIBLY AS I PLAY MY MIDI-KEYBOARD. So clearly it is still interacting with Dorico, but it has lost the ability to place notes, rather it ‘ghosts’ the cursor forward as it if was placing them.
When this situation arises, I’ve found that I am still able to input note pitches from my computer keyboard (A,B,C,D etc.) No action I’ve tried within Dorico can get my keyboard functionality back. Un-connecting and re-connecting the usb cable on my midi-keyboard has no effect either. Quitting Dorico and re-opening corrects the behavior.
Since upgrading to D3, I’ve primarily been working on the same large project (40 flows). However, this issue has happened at least two times in other smaller projects, so I know it to be system-wide for me. I’m using NotePerformer exclusively. Was hoping this little quirk would get squashed in the first maintenance update but it’s still here. Perhaps I’m literally the only user experiencing this because no similar posts exist on this forum (to my knowledge).
