Switching from one instrument set to another in one sheet

• Jun 28, 2011 - 08:14

Dear all

Let's say you have an instrument set of snare, bass, tenor drums and four cymbals. The cymbals play nearly always together.

Then we want to switch to a cymbal solo, showing four bars separated and no other instruments. Then we want to switch back to the initial instrument set.

How can this be done?

The way you do it is to go ahead and create all the instruments that will be used at any point in the score - meaning you'll have a lot of empty measures as instruments aren't used - but when done, turn on the Hide Empty Staves option under Style->Edit Genera Style->Score.
