We have been trying to set up my PX-110 Casio with Finale so that I can play the keyboard and have it written directly into sheet music. We spent a full day watching every possible tutorial and triple checking all the elements (Midi cable, Hyperscribe tool, Keyboard settings, drivers etc), however no matter what we troubleshoot it's just not working. At the end of the day I gave up and was writing sheet music with Finale manually, when my friend was playing the keyboard (still plugged into the computer). It randomly started recognising some of the notes he was playing and putting them over the sheet music I was writing. We tried a few more times and it would work sporadically and then stop working. Sometimes it would pick up all the notes and sometimes just half of the notes being played. Pretty soon it stopped working altogether again. So has anyone had this problem before? Do you know if its the keyboard, cable, or software? Operating system is Windows 10 Home, and the Finale software is Version 25.0.0.6858 .. We also tried it on the 30 day free trial of the latest Finale where it wouldn't work either. Would love your input, Thanks!

Clare,

Be aware that "playing your keyboard and having it turned into sheet music" is not a realistic goal. Hyperscribe has no way of knowing if that quarter note that you played was meant to have the double-dot that the computer counted, and so forth. It can be done - somewhat - but it takes truly robotic playing, as well as quite a bit of editing.

 

Using the MIDI keyboard to enter notes in step time, either in Speedy or Simple, is much more attainable.

 

David, what ever happened to that video where Tom showed using the keyboard in Hyperscribeto establish rhythm (more or less) and then entering the notes with the repitch tool? Was it ditched when he left the company?

Those are all on the Finale YouTube channel. Number 6 is the Repitch Tool video.
