Breathing pauses

• Apr 23, 2019 - 20:38

Hi, Gang!!!

I use MuseScore 3.0.5 (not the Portable AppImage), in Ubuntu Studio 18.04.2 LTS (64 bit Linux).

I don't know if I did something wrong but...

I used the typical breathing pause marks (commas) in the voice staff and I set it to 0,33 seconds in the inspector. BUT... I discovered that all the instruments stop that amount of time in this point!!!

It is not the expected behaviour. The breathing pause should affect ONLY to the instrument itself, and that "pause" doesn't change the piece execution itself. The breathing pause just has to short briefly the last note duration without to alter the playing time!!!

Can this fix it, please? ???

Just an idea.

Blessings and Greetings from Chile!!!

Workaround, don't set a pause on the breath mark, but use the PianoRoll Editor to shorten the playback duration of the note.

Well, I used something more "easy"...

I add an Staccato sign on the notes where the breathing pauses are, BUT... I put all those signs as not visible!!!

It works (Hi hi hi)!!!

BUT... MuseScore should do this automatically, Don't you agree? ???

Breath marks (if configiured to have a non 0 pause) don't 'steal' time from the previous or following note, like they really should, but indeed cause a pause, and that then of course for all instruments.
This is a current limitation. Piano Roll Editor is indeed the workaround here.
