Playback missing tones; File|Parts nothing; MIDI conversion problems
I'm a new user (started an hour ago), testing if I can import my existing compositions via MIDI. It read the MIDI ok (not the prettiest, but didn't expect it to be like a real score because of missing info from MIDI track). However, upon playback, it wasn't able to handle "stacked entry of notes". e.g. in 1st beat, the piano plays C for 4 beats, on 2nd beat, play E for 3 beats, on 3rd beat, play G for 2 beats. MuseScore only plays the 1st C for 4 beats, and skipped the E and G!
Also, this was a piece for 5 instruments written without key signature (you may say it is C major if you like). The 4th instrument is a piano. When converted via MIDI, it shows the instruments correctly, but the piano score now has a key signature with 3 sharps, and another instrument has 2 flats, while others have no accidentals. The piano is non-transposing instrument, so it is not correct. (The notes are correct though, when read together with the key signature, but as a result it'd have double-sharps and other wierdness.)
Also, I wasn't able to see anything active on File|Parts. I'm assuming that's where I can display only one or more parts? It shows the names of the instruments on the right side, but nothing on the left, and all are inactive (can't click). Didn't check if this is only a MIDI conversion problem.
I'm using r1667. Thanks for your attention.
