Musical Typing issues

Post by Anorax » Tue Dec 03, 2019 7:24 pm

Has anyone had issues with the Musical Typing keyboard only being able to play certain chords at once? e.g. When you first open it, try playing a C Major chord with the A, D, and G keys at the same time?

Hi,

It’s just the first time?

We found that the number of keys you can press simultaneously varies from keyboard to keyboard.

I can do a CM / CM7 / Cm7 / C6.
So thats A-D-G +J/U/H or 4 other simultainious notes, in fact I can do 5 or A,S,D,F but no other so it depends. I use A microft usb keyboard @£15 since I spilled a cup of coffee on my Logitek one but that could play 4 mulitple notes as well. 8)

Hi,

It only happens when you first open Musical Typing? And then you can play the chord?

Or you can never play that chord? If so, have you been using the same PC keyboard since Mixcraft 5?

Multiple keyboards across multiple computers. Here's the related bug report.

That's odd Mick, because ADG is the exact key combination that I've never been able to play, whether using a cheap USB keyboard I picked up from a surplus sale or the Surface Pro Keyboard on my Surface Pro 6.

Hi,

Okay, so probably a Windows issue and not a Mixcraft issue. PC keyboards are no replacement for MIDI controller keyboards, I reckon.

I just tried it again to be sure and these are the notes played all at once a - d - g - j - l - ' . my old keyboard managed 4, this new Microsoft one does 6 depending on the keys used, played as sustained arppegio or all at once. Microsoft keyboard model 600.
