I’ve just opened Dorico 4.1 for the first time and I’ve got a problem with my MIDI keyboard not playing notes.
I can trigger notes in HALion and the Write mode keyboard, however I can’t get any audio when I play my MIDI keyboard. There is a green light in the bottom right corner when I play a note, and the notes are being placed on the staff correctly when I input them.
I’m bit stuck!
Mac or PC? And how are you connecting the keyboard? USB, midi interface or Bluetooth?
Does the keyboard work in any other program/daw?
Mac, keyboard is connected via USB, keyboard is working normally with other programmes.
Note: the keyboard is working with Dorico, I’m just not getting any play through from the VST. Note input is working; the VST plays back any notes from the staff, and can be triggered with the mouse.
Hi @Pat_K, could it be that you have the same issue as described In this thread?
Yes, this sounds like a very similar issue!
I have the same issue, and also found a solution:
In Edit > Preferences > Play, turn off and on “Enable MIDI thru”
Now it should work.
As mentioned in the other thread, there will be soon an update coming out with a fix for that issue. A little patience please.
Please get the 4.1.10 update which just got released.
Enable MIDI thru seems to reset the issue, but I have to repeat every time I open the software.
I’ll get the 4.1.10 update and let you know if there are any further problems.
Thank you for all the help!
Hi @Pat_K and others,
it looks like the fix in 4.1.10 created another issue as reported here.
I’ve just installed 4.1.10 and the it seems to be working well.
I don’t seem to have the same issue as reported in the link above.
Thank you for your help!
