convert from SATB on 4 staves to 2 staves?

• Mar 18, 2023 - 14:07

I have written a short choral piece for 4 voices SATB using a separate stave for each part. Is there a way that MuseScore could convert it to a SATB score with SA on the treble clef and TB on the bass clef?


On a related question, are there any “rules of thumb” for setting up the voicings prior to imploding? Example, on a simple piece, the SA parts might use voice 1 for the Sopranos and voice 2 for the Altos in order to accommodate any duration differences. Is it important to set up the individual staves in the same voices that will be needed after imploding? And a more complex situation, say some of the parts occasionally have SSAATTBB divisions with different durations so need different voicings. To get the implosion to be accurate, would you want for example to use voices 1 and 2 for the 1st and 2nd Sopranos and voices 3 and 4 for the 2 Alto parts? IOW, is it essential to “prime the pump” so to speak?
