If you have a MIDI keyboard attached to your computer you can enter music very quickly.

  • Switch your MIDI controller on before starting Denemo
    • Usually your MIDI controller will be automatically detected. If not in the Edit→Preferences dialog under MIDI tab select your controller
  • Play some notes – they should appear in the score
  • Press a number key to select a duration – a yellowish-brown note of that duration appears
    • If ordinary (black) notes appear check “Rhythm Entry for MIDI in” in the Preferences
  • Play in some more notes.
  • Note that you can enter in more than one duration, then just play the notes over the top.
  • The choice of pitch spelling (e.g. E-flat or D-sharp) can be adjusted
    • Use Input->MIDI->Shift Accidentals Sharpwise or Flatwise
    • Or click the icons in the MIDI-controls
  • Augmented and Diminished instruments are played on a separate channel – this helps catch pitch spelling errors.
  • You can record a passage of music and then notate it
    • First (optional) set the tempo to the tempo you can comfortably play in at
    • Place the cursor at the place in the score where you want to enter the music
    • Use Alt-r to start recording
    • Play in a passage of music
    • “Play” in the durations, including rests, ties, dotted notes and (optionally) slurs, ornaments and other markings – the recorded notes are used to give the pitches
    • Use Alt-BackSpace key to delete a wrong duration – the recorded note will back up to match
    • Use Alt-Delete, Alt-Delete to delete the recording so far and continue with a new one.
    • Use Alt-Delete, c to delete the recording and the click track it is on to end
    • Note there are further options to move about and listen back to the recording in the Playback->Recording menu
    • There is a demo of this method
