Note input

There are several different ways to input notes.

To input notes, you can use any of the following methods, and switch between them at any time:

  • MIDI keyboard

  • Computer keyboard

  • Mouse or trackpad


A MIDI keyboard is the fastest way to input notes.

The procedures that you come across in this chapter are for active note input. Information relating to note editing or the options that influence note input are handled in the notation reference. In some cases, though, hints to editing processes may be given in this chapter.
