Creating a song album with varying instruments
I have in mind creating a song album with 24 Christmas songs. They have differing sets of instruments, so I can't join the single scores into an album. But I still can collect them into an album and do a pdf print.
- Since I can't join the scores due to differing instrument sets, must each song start on a new page?
- Must I go to each individual score to allow page numbering on 1st page? My test revealed that joining two one page songs and one two page song, I only got a page number 4 on the last page. All other pages were the first pages of the individual songs.
- I might want to create a cover page as #1, a blank page as #2, a table of contents as #3 and probably the first song on #4. Pages 1-3 are therefore stuff not created with MuseScore, unless I find out a way of creating staff free pages in MuseScore, just for the sake of creating the whole document from cover to cover with MuseScore's album function. Would it be better just to create an album with the actual sheet music pages, minding the page numbers, print it as a pdf and then join it with the cover and other non staff pages using other pdf joining software?
- Musescore can only print albums, right?. It can't export them directly to pdf files like individual scores, right? One has to use virtual printers that write pdf files, right?
