MIDI live recording in piano roll?

Hey folks,

[Pre-Purchase question]

I’m currently trying to build a portable setup for sketching ideas and was wondering if Dorico Elements might be sleeker fit, than a typical DAW with its bloated feature set. Therefore I have one question:

Is it possible to live record notes in the piano roll (Play Mode) with a MIDI keyboard, like in a DAW? Enable click > hit record > play some notes on an instrument track > done.

Or is there any other way to play in instruments live with a keyboard, instead of writing notes?

You can play the notes in live.

Great, thanks. That’s all I needed to know.
