MIDI Import issues (MuseScore 4.0.1)

• Mar 6, 2023 - 23:45

I'm trying to import a MIDI file, and some rythms in tuplets are not imported properly.

This is how bar 4 is imported in MuseScore:

And this is the same bar in MidiPlay (https://chrishills.org.uk/ChrisHills/midiplay/)

I understand that MIDI is an audio file, and MuseScore tries it's best to convert it into a score.

Some triplets are properly identified, but it gets a bit messy with others. Other programs, like midiplay, are recognizing all triplets without problem.

I hope this can help to improve the MIDI import process.

Yes, MidiPlay, as name suggests, is just good por playing midi files, but it does not have any support for import/export to other file types.

Finale and flat.io, for example, also fail to detect the triplets.
Sibelius, in the other hand, does recognize them properly:
