How to connect a midi keyboard
#1
This is my first time trying Muse, and I find the Jack midi connections to be a bit different than other programs I've used.
I created a midi track and would like to record some midi. I look in the QjackCtl Jack tab and see Muse has 2 inputs: "a2j:Midi Through" and
"firewire_pcm". I am completely baffled. "firewire_pcm" is my midi keyboard, but why is it listed as Muse input channel? I want to connect it to some "midi_in" of Muse. I also see there is "Muse settings"->"Midi ports" which opens a panel of midi connections. I can see a coorelation with the names listed in QJackCtl but I have no clue how this relates to getting midi to track 1. .... After staring at this panel for a while I figure out there are I and O columns with green dots that I can click on and off to turn on and off for inputs and outputs. So I click off all inputs except my midi keyboard and discover I am able to make a recordings.

Ok, I guess I have answered my question. I have to say, I find Muse's naming of midi channels highly non-intuitive. Rather than use names related the tracks in Muse they are related to the names of the external midi connections. I find this totally bizzare. By the way this is Muse 2.0.1.
