MIDI import problem

Symphony Pro seems to me to do a pretty good job overall of importing MIDI files. The main problem is that long notes and rests often break the standard rules for extending across beats. For example, if a 4/4 bar consists of an eighth note followed by a long rest, the rest gets generated as a half rest followed by three eighth rests, which is backwards. If there is an eighth note followed by a long note, the latter gets generated as a half note (wrongly extending across beat 3) tied to shorter notes. It's extremely time-consuming to fix these obvious problems in every bar of the generated score (especially since SP5 no longer allows you to change the length of just the first note or rest in a tie group!), and it would be great if this could be fixed.


  • Thanks @Redwave, this should be fixed in the current update (5.1.5), but keep us posted if you encounter overlooked cases or related difficulties.
