Error exporting MIDI files

• Sep 23, 2019 - 12:12
Reported version
S3 - Major

When I export the scores to MIDI it creates an empty file.
I have the latest version of Musescore for Windows 10.
I hope someone can help me.


Severity S2 - Critical S3 - Major

Works fine for me in 3.2.3 with the posted file. Are you sure you are selecting MIDI as the output format, and that you are waiting for the file to be saved? Are you looking for the file in the same folder it saved in? Be sure to check the folder when the file dialog appears.

Can you be more precise about exactly what you are you doing, and what is happening to make you believe it didn't work? Here's what should work:

1) open a score in MuseScore
2) File / Export
3) Choose MIDI as the format
4) Choose a folder and filename (important - don't assume you know what folder is being used, actually check!)
5) press Save
6) wait a few seconds (longer if the score is long)
7) open your favorite file browser (eg, File Explorer on Windows, Finder on macOS)
8) browse to that same folder you exported to
9) the file you exported should be present

If you are following these step precisely and it still isn't working, please attach screenshots of the export dialog at step 4 and then a screenshot of the file browser showing that same folder. To make it clear, maybe choose an otherwise empty folder.

It appears fro the score and screenshots that you are using MuseScore 2, and a translated version. There was a bug as I recall in some older version involving translations where the names of the export formats were translated incorrectly leading to some failures, perhaps you are seeing something like that. Please try again in MuseScore 3.2.3, and as I suggested, please use a folder with nothing else in it for testing purposes.
