Length of note controlled by key press length
Hi, I'm new to this so please bear with me. I have downloaded Musecore3 and have connected my midi keyboard.
How can I control the length of the note from my midi keyboard ? ...
Lets say I have set up my time signature as 4/4 beats in a bar. How to I set the program note length to be controlled by my keyboard eg, if I hold down a key for four beats I would like it to be written as one note in the bar lasting 4 beats, or if I tap the keyboard 4 times I would like to see 4 x single crotchets in the bar. Is this possible or do I have to set each individual note length on the software, if this is the case it seems to me it would take forever to write a piece of music.
Hope I have made sense and thanks to anyone that understands my problem and is able to help me.
