How do you setup your MIDI keyboard and Dorico so that when you enter a note on, for instance, the Flute stave by pressing a key on the MIDI keyboard, you hear the flute sound you’ve assigned for playback? The notes are successfully entered, but all I ever hear is piano, not the sound assigned to the stave. When I playback the score all of the sounds are correct for the staves; I just can’t get input to work to sound the instrument assigned to the staves. What am I doing wrong?
However, when I input notes via my logitech computer keyboard, I hear the correct sounds: flute for flute stave, horn for horn stave etc… So, obviously, something is wrong with my MIDI setup.
Ok, so here I am about an hour later and just discovered that if I check ‘Enable MIDI Thru’ under ‘Recording’ on the ‘Play’ tab in ‘Preferences’, I now hear the instrument sound assigned to the stave when inputting music via my MIDI keyboard. Could someone explain to me why this is necessary? What does ‘MIDI Thru’ do to make the sound get sent to output after playing on my MIDI keyboard?
