Changing the volume on a voice

• Sep 6, 2016 - 12:48

I am trying to set up a score with two voices. Soprano and Tenor. However,
when I open view mixer, there is only one
voice to adjust. Maybe I am looking in all the wrong places but it has been a while since I used musescore.


2 voices or 2 instruments? Mixes is only per instrument. (and Soprano and Tenor are considered instruments by MuseScore, while voices are rhythmically independant melody lines in a staff).
Not sure how likely it is that you are notating Soprano and Tenor in the same staff though, considering that they are off by an octave, so you should be notating them in separate staves, with a G clef for Soprano and a G clef 8vb for Tenor

You are so correct. I do have two staves. G clef for Soprano and G clef 8vb for Tenor. When I used musescore before, I thought that both voices were listed in the mixer and that I could change the volume of playback for each voice. Again, it has been a long time since I have used the program and there may have been an update that changed the mixer. When I play the tune, I would like the soprano part quieter and the tenor part louder since I am a tenor and want to learn my part what slightly hearing the soprano part. I hope I haven't muddied the waters with my comments. Just trying to fix my issue.

If they really are to separate instruments, both show should up in the mixer and allow you to solo one or change their volume individually.
If you can't get it to work, you could apply a softer dynamic to Soprano or a stronger one to Tenor (Default is mf, so ff for Tenor or p for Soprano might do)

The picture is exactly what I am trying to do. I do have two staves. One is the G clef and the other is the C clef. Is that where I am having the problem? Do I need two G Clefs?
