I have almost finished a score of a track I recorded in Studio One 4 (about 5mins long). There is a ritardando at the end with numerous tempo changes (I tend to draw these in to simulate a held pause, followed by an ‘a tempo’ and then another ritardando), so I thought I would try to import the tempo track data to try to copy what we already had.
I exported the midi file from Studio One as .mid(about 650Kb) and have tried importing it into my project (which uses about 10Gb of 64Gb available memory). My computer had a heart attack (CPU at 100%, the memory climbed steadily 60Gb of 64Gb). I closed the project and opened the file as an empty project. Again CPU went 100% with the memory climbing eventually to maximum before coming down and then rising again. I’m not sure what the computer is trying to do. Dorico window is at 60% but it’s been about seven minutes now. Task Manager hasn’t said Dorico has crashed but what is it doing? It could probably crunch BitCoins with the amount of processing that going on. I’m just trying to get a handle on what is possible. I wouldn’t have thought a midi file would have been a problem to a computer these days.
