Musical Typing problem

Hello there,
I just started to use mainstage without a midi controller keyboard. I'm using the musical typing feature to listen to the bank of sounds.
When i type something like a F#7 chord ("t", "u", "o", ";") i cannot hear the four notes together (when i'm playing them all at once)... it seems there's a problem when i'm trying to mix certain notes with the musical typing keyboard. (Some complicated chords just don't work).
I have the same problem with Logic 8 . (press caps lock to see the musical typing window).
I can't see why i can't get that F#7 chord.
I'm using mac os 10.5.1 with a macbook pro 2,4 ghz.
thanks

Computer keyboards aren't designed to respond to multiple keys all pressed at once. I think you'll find the most a standard Mac keyboard will deal with is four keys at once, but even then they won't respond with minimal latency, because they aren't designed for this.
It's a limitation to how computer keyboards are built and processed, not a Logic/Mainstage issue as such. The caps lock keyboard is a convenience thing - it's not intended to be a suitable interface for playing Rachmaninov on...

  • Musical typing problem ... help?

    Hi,
    I just installed Leopard. I was previously running 10.3 and I had garageband and everything worked fine. I put garageband on the 10.5 and I no longer have musical typing. When i select software instrument it is asking me if i want to save the instrument or discard it. I have tried both options and neither of them allow the typing to work. Does anyone know why this is? Am I looking at a compatibility issue? Garageband is version 3.0.5 i think ... it may be 3.0.4 but i thought the update just went through.
    Thanks in advance for any help
    Nick

    I selected Musical Typing and still I can play but I can't see it. I'm really despered man I was getting so into this program!!

  • 4gen ipod touch typing problem.

    Hey guys new user thanks for having me onboard. Just recently having a new problem that i never ever had before dont know if its a ios 6.1.2 update or what but then again just had this problem today and i updated when it came out and never had a problem until today the problem is on my 4 gen ipod touch is that when i try to type in the searching for a song in music or goog on safari or in a app when i start typing the first letter in like the letter t it would type in like 2 or more letters more than my first letter punch and when i try to use backspace it doesn't work whatsoever and i'm 100 % positive that i didn't do anything to the screen so i typed iso 6.1.2 typing problems on another computer and couldn't find anything and was wondering if anyone else has this same problem and no how to fix or what not any help would be greatly appreciated thanks again.
                                      BTW already restored it andsame thing happens.

    Yes, I type in the phone number, I also tried their apple ID or email address and I put in a message. The Send button would not highlight. I'm trying to send a message to 1 particular person who has an Iphone 6. However, I sent one to my Iphone 6 and it worked so I don't think there is a difference in the software. I know this is an older gen ipod but it says it's up to date.

  • Musical Typing - Keyboard is cut off

    Hey there,
    I'm having a problem with the musical typing keyboard.
    Somehow I shrunk it and now only the top half is visible.
    Any ideas?

    Hi. I had this trouble also. I was using musical typing, then I switched tracks and did other things, then came back and it did not work. I don't know what I might have hit in the interim that turned it off. The mouse/cursor still plays music, but the keyboard does not.
    In fact, when I type now on the keyboard, the whole screen greys out. But this doesn't seem to be all the keys; for example, 'R" still starts recording.
    -=-=-=-
    OK, so it's now a minute later and the mute button WAS on for that track. I swear I checked it! Consider this solved for now.
    -=-=-=-
    Nope. Well, it worked for a minute there, then stopped again after I moved a track. What is going on here? Yeesh.

  • The track got muted/unmuted after pressing cmd + K (musical typing)

    Guys,
    I need your help,,
    There's very weird problem here.
    I pressed a cmd K to use the musical typing, and suddenly the track was muted.
    So I deleted cmd K short cut in key commands menu. But cmd K is still working and also muting my track.
    Is there anybody have same problem like this?
    Help me out!! PLZ!!!
    Thx!

    You must have assigned CMD + K to something else so.....
    Do the following......
    Delete the user preferences
    You can resolve many issues by restoring Logic Pro X back to its original settings. This will not impact your media files. To reset your Logic Pro X user preference settings to their original state, do the following:
    Quit Logic Pro
    In the Finder, choose Go to Folder from the Go menu.
    Type ~/Library/Preferences in the "Go to the folder" field.
    Press the Go button.
    Remove the com.apple.logic10.plist file from the Preferences folder. Note that if you have programmed any custom key commands, this will reset them to the defaults. You may wish to export your custom key command as a preset before performing this step. See the Logic Pro X User Manual for details on how to do this. If you are having trouble with a control surface in Logic Pro X, then you may also wish to delete the com.apple.logic.pro.cs file from the preferences folder.
    Restart the computer.
    Note: If you cannot find either of these files you didn't follow the instructions exactly as written...

  • How do I use my computer keyboard instead of a MIDI keyboard to enter notes? In Garage Band I simply go to View - musical typing but there is no such prompt in Logic Pro 7.

    Ihave always used my Logic Pro 7 program with a MIDI keyboard for note entry. I do not presently have a MIDI keyboard and wish to use my computer keyboard for note entry. I know this is possible but cannot recall the command to set that up. Can anyone refresh my memory? I know that on Garageband on just need to go to view - musical typing but that is not the command in Logic Pro.

    Hi,
    Hit the Caps Lock key.

  • Garageband 10.0.1 - no "legacy", no way to drag samples to musical typing??

    All I have on my MacBook is Garageband 10.0.1, no previous versions.  It is a legit copy, and I've purchased all the additional loops, sounds, etc....I'm simply trying to drag a loop or .mp3 sound onto a key on the "musical typing" screen to play it, either using the musical typing or from my Midi controller.  It will not let me drag any sound from the loop finder, a track, or my desktop onto any key.  I've searched and searched, and everyone says to go into the "Legacy" library and use a sound effet track, but I don't have any "legacy" library.....Help?!?

    I think you already said this, but what I do is drag it from my desktop (or wherever it may be), into the track. Once it's on the track I open up the "Musical Typing" and then drag it from the track onto the key. I'm also having an issue with the legacy instruments. I wiped my Mac and reinstalled Mavericks along with Garageband and all the iLife stuff from the App store and now I no longer have legacy instruments even after restoring my $4.99 purchase. I won't use GB until I get the legacy stuff back.

  • Help! I lost my musical typing keyboard

    Hello,
    I have worked in GarageBand for about a month since I got my new Macbook. However, somehow I lost the box for musical typing, the one that shows the keyboard. Thus, I can't continue on my song unless I painfully enter my ideas note by note.
    I'm not really sure what I did and I have no clue how to fix it. Still, I'm pretty sure it is easy to fix... for someone else!
    Please help!
    Emma

    the only other thing i can offer is a program i wrote a couple of years ago to try to fix GB4 files (it's never been tested on GB5 files):

    I just realized that I put this in the wrong section. It should be in Garageband 3. If anyone knows how to move it, it would be appreciated. thanks

    you don't mention saving your instrument.

  • Onscreen Keyboard & Musical Typing enhancements

    I do not remember these enhancements with GB3... there are now icons on the onscreen keyboard to swap back and forth between the keyboard and musical typing - this is a nice touch. Also, I noticed that when playing a MIDI file, if you have the musical typing screen displayed, you can follow along with the notes being played. Another nice touch for learning.

    I do not remember these enhancements with GB3...
    Both are brand new to GB08

  • Musical Typing

    So i've made a bass guitar track using musical typing. Now im editing it, fixing keyboard delays, human errors and just making sure everything hits at the right time. But fixing every single note takes a looong time. There's got to be an auto fix/correction/auto analyze feature, or a way to sync the track with the metronome.. it only makes sense. But i cant for the life of me find it.
    Please help, would really appreciate if someone knew how to make this process faster/less time consuming

    open the track editor and use the Quantize popUp and slider to lock in the notes to the note length and timing you want

  • Oxygen 49 and musical typing not responsive with Logic X

    So recently my M Audio Oxygen 49 Midi keyboard stopped working. I tried switching to the Musical typing and that didn't work either. I don't know if Logic X doesn't support the keyboard but then why does the musical typing not work. Any solutions?

    Assuming that your Audio output is still working ok... Drag an Apple Loop to the arrange window and see if you can hear it play back to confirm.. and if you cannot hear anything go to Logic's Preferences/Audio and check that Core Audio is checked and the correct audio output is selected for Output...
    Musical Typing works fine with LPX and any OS X combination so the issue has to be either;
    User Error...
    or...
    Some form of preferences corruption.. or issue with your Control Surfaces...
    Therefore... try the following first.... deleting both the Logic10.plist and the CS files...
    Delete the user preferences
    You can resolve many issues by restoring Logic Pro X back to its original settings. This will not impact your media files. To reset your Logic Pro X user preference settings to their original state, do the following:
