MIDI import skips notes

Hey, i just started to use this nice software, and love it but i now have a problem with importing MIDI. The preview window plays my MIDI file like i wrote it, but when ScoreCloud imports in, the result is a lot different.
See the video:

and the .mid file attached.

My note reading skills are very limited, or more like ... i cant read them at all, and thats the main reason i started to use this software, but i can HEAR the difference, and i can tell that the original MIDI has more notes than the imported.
So, how do i fix this, or what am i doing wrong?

    Hi, and welcome!

    When importing MIDI to a song in ScoreCloud, the engine applies some music logic to it. This is because many MIDI files found on the internet is rather messy with timings and pitch. In your case this changes some of your intentions, witch is unfortunate.

    We'll take a look at your MIDI file and see what's going on!

    In the meantime, you can try importing the file to the listener, by choosing "Import to: Listener" in the MIDI import dialog.

    If you select the first part of you song and analyze you will get all the notes, but the analysis here will straighten out the shuffle feeling.

    From here you can choose C-minor (or whatever you like) from the "Transpose" button in the toolbar.

    If you want your triplets back, select a beat and choose "Rhythm -> 3-division" in the Actions Panel like in these screenshots.

  • Hey JohanR ... and WOW, thanks! that helped!!! I did exactly as you said and that did the job. :D
    I though the "Listener" was only for listening MIDI files or something.
    Anyway, now i can continue with my project. :) This is great software!

    Great!

    The listener is mainly used for playing into from a MIDI instrument or Audio, but importing MIDI into the listener is useful if you have saved files of yourself playing, or in cases like this :-)
