I don't get this error message. Why is it shown? Same error occurs using dev version 3.
Please consider making it more descriptive.

Steps to reproduce:
- install fresh musescore 2.3.2
- start it
- go to edit, preferences, I/O, select portaudio and choose a midi input device
- press apply
- restart musescore
- go to edit, preferences, note input and choose MIDI Remote Control
- assign a MIDI event to 'Real-time Advance'
- press apply
- create new score, choose instrument unpitched percussion, drumset
- activate real-time (manual) mode
From now on every time the assigned MIDI event is triggered an error is shown.

The problem could be a collision of GM2 drumset and the midi event if it's triggered by a note of the GM2 drumset.


Comments

Real-time Advance does not work for percussion instruments. Neither using the keyboard shortcut.
Should we possibly add a note to the documentation?

Is this still reproducible in 3.5? Much has changed since 2.3.2, and there is another change pending for 3.5.1 that may help further.
