Add absolute notes?
It's cool that Musescore has a built-in heuristic that figures out the most likely note a user wants to add when they presses a key on the keyboard. For users who want to directly enter notes absolutely there are two options: use a piano keyboard via MIDI or use the ‘Piano Keyboard’ feature. But the latter only uses the same heuristic that assigns the 7 computer keys (c,d,e,f,g,a,b) to notes.
Is there a way to enter notes by keyboard directly? I wrote an external script (using AutoHotkey) that uses the first two rows of the computer keyboard (1,2,3,...,q,w,e,...) to allow entering an undecime directly, with keys SC00F and SC01B (which on a US kbd are used for Tab and ‘]’) to go down or up an octave. The way I currently implemented it is by reverse-engineering the built-in heuristic and sending the corresponding shortcuts c,d,e,f,g,a,b, ↑, ↓ , Ctrl+↑, Ctrl+↓. That has the disadvantage that the black keys and intervals > tritone require two consecutive entries, resulting in two notes being played. Alternatively, I could have the script move the mouse to the appropriate key on the ‘Piano Keyboard’ display, but that's still a roundabout way to enter what in the program is just one byte of information.
So, is there a way to directly tell Musescore to add a given note, such as by providing simply its MIDI number?
