Rest at Beginning of Piece when Importing MIDI

• Mar 25, 2019 - 13:26

I recently imported a piano MIDI file into MuseScore 3. The first MIDI note starts at the 0:00 mark in the file.

However, when I import it into MuseScore, there is a quarter rest in both the Treble and Bass clefs of the first measure (on the downbeat) that I cannot remove. I would like the get the entire piece to shift to the left by the value of a quarter note, but can't seem to do it.

Any help would be appreciated!


In order to say for sure what is going on, it would help if you attached the MIDI file. But, to do what it sounds like you want, don't think in terms of deleting the rest, thin in terms of moving the notes. So, select everything after the rest (eg, click rest, Ctrl+Shift+End), cut, click desired start location, paste.
