Importing Midi File ... How To Include Sustain Pedal CC

Post by wonder » Wed Apr 03, 2019 1:01 am

I'm doing all my tracks in DP and then I'll SAVE AS a Midi File.

I'll open that in Finale and start to edit.

I'm wondering if there's a way to import Sustain Pedal commands and have them at least somewhat visible in Finale?

I'm importing "Continuous Data" when importing into Finale but I'm wondering if there's a way to view that data within Finale to see where the CC data is?

Thank you.

I found the "Continuous Data" / View Continuous Data / 64 Sustain Pedal and clicked OK but nothing showed up.

Did you then double-click on the staff in the score? Scrolling up and down then gives you a view of the MIDI data for each staff

OK. So after some research I've found the proper windows.

I see my sustains that I played with my DAW ... is there a way to transfer that to the visual Smart Shape "Pedal" marking so I don't have to do all of them by hand?

I don't know of a way to automate this. I think you're going to have to bite the bullet and put them in yourself.
