[SOLVED] Help needed: MIDI exported from Musescore only has one part sound
I produce my piano music by first composing in Musescore, then I export a MIDI, which goes into Garageband, and then into a VST of my choice (typically Noire).
The problem here is that although the MIDI sounds perfectly fine in Musescore and in Garageband using the default electric keyboard, the Piano 2 part does not sound the moment I try to have it sound with Noire (Piano 1 sounds fine).
Two workarounds have been attempted and have been met with failure:
1. Merging Piano 1 and Piano 2 into one MIDI, played on the same software instrument. The issue persists; Piano 1 sounds, Piano 2 does not sound.
2. Separating Piano 1 and Piano 2; first producing Piano 1, then Piano 2, in different project files, where only 1 software instrument is sounding at any given point in time. The issue persists; Piano 1 sounds, Piano 2 does not sound.
This is either an issue with Musescore messing up the MIDI export or with the VST I use. Any help is appreciated.
[SOLVED]: A workaround has been achieved. Piano 1 and Piano 2 have been extracted into their own standalone mscz files and then exported into two separate working MIDIs. The conclusion here is likely that the parts function is playing havoc with something in the MIDI. Other than this, I have literally no idea what the hell is happening.
