Vioilin notes sustain in one song but not in the other, even after exact copying?? HELP!
OK, this is driving me nuts. I have been working on a song and when I entered a series of violin notes, I was pleasantly surprised to hear them sustain from one note to the other ... a beautiful bow gliding motion from measure to measure. That was exactly what I wanted. To hear what I mean, open the MuseScore file named "Test1", included below and listen (the default violin is selected).
When I cut and pasted the SAME exact notes from one score to a new one, the violin notes stopped more abruptly between notes and measures. The bow glide was no longer much apparent, even though I swear the two scores were set up the same. To hear this effect, listen to the same notes in MuseScore file "Test2" below. You will hear the notes stop more abruptly. I tried adding slurs from one measure to another, but the notes still stopped too quickly.
What the heck is different about the two scores, and how can I enter violin notes so that they sustain like file 1, and not stop abruptly like file 2?
