MIDI Sight Reader

Load a score and see the notes turn green as you play them on your MIDI keyboard. Great for learning to sight-read, or for when you are just starting a new piece.
The notes turn green when you have exactly the right notes down, so watch out for rests etc.
Please note that the MIDI sight reader struggles with "swung" music.

MIDISightReaderPlugin_1_5_2bForMuseScore2_0_1.zip works with MuseScore 2.0.1.
I have tested it using:
- MuseScore 2.0.1 running on Windows Vista Home Premium service pack 2 32-bit.
- MuseScore 2.0.2 running on Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64-bit.

PLEASE NOTE that if you want to run this on Linux, you need to edit the file MIDISightReader.qml in the plugins directory. Find these lines:
// Start the Midi sight reader.
var commandLine = filePath+"/MIDISightReader/MIDISightReader.bat";
//var commandLine = filePath+"/MIDISightReader/MIDISightReader.bash";
... and change them to:
// Start the Midi sight reader.
//var commandLine = filePath+"/MIDISightReader/MIDISightReader.bat";
var commandLine = filePath+"/MIDISightReader/MIDISightReader.bash";

Also, you need to make the file MIDISightReader.bash executable:
sudo chmod +x MIDISightReader.bash
