Re: [Denemo-devel] midi input weirdness

I may be a bit confused. I thought this was all dependant upon how the modwheel is set on the midi controller. When I do midi input I put the modwheel half way if I was in the key of c and then move it up if I start to see flats when sharps are expected and visa versa. I was not sure if that is how it is supposed to work but I think I remember Richard talking about this once so I tried it and it worked.

but I will :)
my guess is that at some point a very flat key signature was set (while
using the educational game?). I don't recall the circumstances when it
adjusts the range of sharps and flats for you, but generally programs
changing things on your behalf are a nuisance, so it is quite

This isn't a question of "settings" - it's not a preference. For each
piece you need to set the  range (E-b to G-# or D-# to A-b) and then
adjust it if the piece strays into more remote keys. It does do some
sensible default if you start a new piece, but as you have found, if you
then change what you are doing it may no longer be sensible.
(Oh! and it *does* remember the last range you used for a given piece,
so when you reload a piece in E-major it doesn't carry on using E-flat
for D-sharp).
