Note input

In Dorico Elements, you can only input notes during note input, which is when the caret is activated. This reduces the risk of you adding notes to staves accidentally.

You can also input notations at the same time as inputting notes. Notations are input at the caret position or on the selected note.

You can input notes in different ways and using any of the following devices, including switching between them at any time:

  • MIDI keyboard

  • Computer keyboard

  • Mouse or touchpad

  • Keyboard, Fretboard, and Drum Pads panels


A MIDI keyboard can be the fastest way to input notes.
