Also no fundamental problems, for at least 4 years now. However, MIDI input for a "driverless" MIDI kyeboard does not work as of now. On the other hand, connecting to a MidiSport Uno 1x1 is no problem.

The only issue I have today, that I did not have under earlier Windows versions, is the inability to use MIDI In. But to be honest, I can't remember when this stopped working for me. I'm pretty sure it worked under Windows XP, but I can't remember whether I tried MIDI In when I was on Vista, 7 or 8.

And to be fair, I'm not 100% positive that my MIDI In issues are rooted in NWC. It's not currently a major concern for me, but I thought I'd mention it.

Hi friends,
My question is really simple: is there any compatibility issues between NWC and Windows 10?? I'm thinking about updating my computer (still working with W7...) and I need to keep using NWC to make music.
Can somebody explain any experience running NWC in Windows 10??

Thanks a lot friends  :))

Hi Jmoly -

what you want to do on some first level, is more or less similar to me, when I drive my crank organ directly from NoteWorthy. What I use:
- A Midisport UNO
- and a j-omega "MIDI-to-parallel" board, which has a single output for every note.

Whether you actually want the latter, or replace it with something you design yourself, you must decide: When you want to signal to your hands, you need to know which note is played by which finger, i.e., the "fingering" comes into play. But, by default, Noteworthy does not know this, so it would not know which finger should be signalled ... from here on, this will be a research project:

- Do you want to add information to an NWC score about the fingering (e.g. as text), which is then somehow transmitted in the MIDI channel to your device (not easy - NWC does not transmit the text)
- or do you want to add some "artificial intelligence" on your side that calculates fingering (very hard, I'll tell you!)
- or can you add the fingering as NWC lyrics, which are then transmitted in the NWC stream? (are they? - I don't know off hand)
- or ... whatever else ...

Another idea: Don't signal the note length, but signal only the "beat" (quarters or whatever). Let Noteworthy play the piece (slowly!) in front of you, so that you see the notes to be played; and at the same time let a "beat track" send beats to your hand, so that you can feel the beat and thus feel when you must go on to the next note (oh, of course you must learn to recognize the note lengths - but there are not that many different ones, so you'll manage this).

I hope you find some way forward!

Regards
Harald M.

Dear Jmoly,

First of all, you can export NWC files as MIDI 0 and MIDI 1 files. That's probably not what you want, but I mention it because it is easy and may be useful to get an idea on how NWC is transcoding the scores into MIDI.

An other approach is to install specific midi tools and send the NWC output not to your speakers, but to this software.

A (very) old tool is Midi-ox ( http://www.midiox.com ). Only Windows NT and Windows 2000 are mentioned, but - with adapted compatibility mode - I was able to install it on Windows 10.

Don't forget to install also virtual patch cables. Midi Yoke can be found on the same website, but there are also alternatives available like for instance LoopBe.

Once you have installed the patch cable(s) and the midi software, you can select the virtual patch cable as midi-output in NWC. I don't know, but you may need to reboot before the patch cables are recognized.
Start midi-ox, configure it to capture the data on the (in NWC selected) patch-cable, and open the input monitor. When you start playing a score in NWC, you should now see the midi commands in the window. If you have also correctly configured an output device you will also hear your music. There are a lot of different options, but documentation is hard/impossible to find. So it is up to you to check if there are other options that will serve your project.
