Piano by Tab-key (or arrow right), guitar by Midi-keyboard. Is it possible?

Post by arturchernyshov » Sun Nov 10, 2019 2:27 am

Hi! Help me, please.
The first track is the piano, midi channel 1.
The second track is a guitar, MIDI channel 2.
There is a MIDI keyboard, MIDI channel 2.
I need that, by pressing the Tab button, I select and listen notes of the first track with sound of piano, but, by pressing the keys of the midi keyboard, I hear the sound of second track (guitar). Is it possible?
Now, if I listen the notes of the first channel (piano) by pressing the Tab button, then the MIDI keyboard also sounds the notes of the first channel (piano).

No idea, really.
But, while Sibelius has some midi capabilities, I don't think it is midi based, and therefore not usable like other midi programs. Sounds to me like you want to be able use sounds in Sibelius triggered by your keyboard and/or your guitar. Not necessarily for note input. If it is for note input into a score, I'm not sure you gain much by having both hooked up at once.

But then I only input notes with a mouse on purpose.
