Changing the sustain pedal controller settings for MIDI recording/import

You can change your default setting for whether Dorico Pro interprets sustain pedal controllers as pedal lines when recording MIDI and importing MIDI files.


These options are also available in the MIDI Import Options dialog, and your settings are linked between this dialog and Preferences.


  1. Press Ctrl/Cmd-, to open Preferences.
  2. Click Play in the category list.
  3. In the Recording subsection, activate/deactivate Import CC64 as pedal lines.
  4. Optional: If you activated Import CC64 as pedal lines, activate/deactivate Snap pedal lines to previous beat.
  5. Click Apply, then Close.


When Import CC64 as pedal lines is activated, the MIDI controller CC64 is interpreted as pedal lines.

When Snap pedal lines to previous beat is activated, the start of pedal lines is automatically moved back to the start of the beat.
