I’m encountering severe spelling issues when importing MIDI for chromatic music. This has been going forever and it’s unfortunately not fixed in 3.1 either.
If you import file 1, the result is very convoluted, with the result starting with a rather awkward Bb-Abb instead of G#-A
But if you import file 2, that is a subset of file 1 stopping at bar 6, then you get the expected spelling.
Therefore, my theory is that the retrospective re-spelling feature is causing it by interpreting the entire MIDI file as one long phrase. Unfortunately there is no option to disable phrase-based spelling for MIDI import, only for MIDI input.
This is preventing MIDI Import on a very high number of scores, especially when coming from Key-agnostic sequencers like Cubase. The current workaround for me is to use Sibelius as an intermediate stop and then go to Dorico via XML, but this has obvious drawbacks, including not taking advantage of the generally superior spelling logic from Dorico.
