MIDI input not working

• Aug 5, 2020 - 06:00

I'm trying to use a MIDI keyboard for input into Musescore, but it is not working. I am on Mac, using a Roland EP 7 ii keyboard, and an E-MU 1x1 adapter. When I go into I/O in preferences the device shows up but when I enter note input mode and play anything on my keyboard it does not come through. Any advice?


In my case, for some reason, the device listed in the I/O panel in preferences was an Output device instead of Input. I could hear the notes in MuseScore when I pressed the MIDI controller's keys, but no notes were added when I was in note entry mode. Changing the I/O type from Output to Input and restarting MuseScore fixed the issue. See https://musescore.org/en/node/319354.
