Editing while playback!

• Dec 9, 2021 - 10:41

I noticed that I can't edit my bars while playback, that's weird in opposite to other DAWs.
Could u allow user to edit their notation while playback, instead I have to stop playback and then edit - too uncomfortable.


MuseScore isn't a DAW :-). In theory, it's possible such a feature could be developed, though. FWIW, I'm not aware of other notation programs that allow this. Playback of notation info is far more complex than playback of audio or MIDI data, so precomputing it before playback is pretty much essential for performance.

Cubase is a DAW primarily that oh by the way happens to try to also provide a notation view of MIDI data. That's a pretty significantly different thing from a program that deals with notation primarily and oh by the way happens to also do MIDI playback.

Anyhow, the point is, notation programs in general tend to work differently from DAW software, both in terms of the user workflow and the internal representation of the data. Again, it's not that it is impossible to implement such a feature, it's just that it is quite a bit more complex due to these differences. And since it's also foreign to how most people working in notated music would be likely to be thinking, it just hasn't been a priority, which is why, again, essentially no other notation programs do this either that I know of.
