midi keyboard not showing up on preverences I/O tab

• Nov 15, 2018 - 17:58

I have selected the ASIO API and ASIO4ALL v2 as the Device. When I click on the down arrow for MIDI Input - nothing shows up. My keyboard plays through my computer just fine. Can anyone help me?
Thanks in advance,

I'm wondering if I have to turn off Reaper in order for MuseScore to see it.

Good point since a midi controller (used during note entry) needs only to send "note events" to MuseScore.
MuseScore then plays the instrument sound of the current staff upon which notes are entered. So, during note entry, notes entered onto the flute staff sound as flute; notes entered onto a piano staff, as piano etc..
(Of course, 'Play notes when editing' must be enabled in Preferences / Note Input along with 'Enable MIDI input'.)

(Similar to using a computer keyboard for note entry - which doesn't require a VST instrument sound.)
