Note input

In Dorico Pro, you can only input notes during note input, which is when the caret is activated. This allows you to input notations at the caret position at the same time as inputting notes, and also reduces the risk of you adding notes to staves accidentally.

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


A MIDI keyboard is the fastest way to input notes.
