MIDI Keyboard & Flexi Time

  • MIDI Keyboard & Real Time Entry by Flexi Time
  • Step-Time Note Entry is a similar way to entering notes by your computer keyboard except instead of using the alpha keyboard to entering notes by letters
  • Entering Rests & Articulations:
    • You can choose the value & press ZERO on your keypad
    • To enter a TIE simply play the first note that press on ENTER key on your keypad, choose the value of the note you wish the tie to, and play the second note
    • It will be smart to toggle off the articulation when you’re done writing them so simply hit escape
  • Flexi Time:
    • Flexi Time Option is under the “Note Input” tab in the ribbon
    • You will see on the bottom right corner there is a little arrow icon, click on that to get the Flexi Time options.
    • When you use the Flexi Time feature, click will adjust to your performance tempo.
