Duration of an entire composition

• Jul 25, 2012 - 03:05

It would be a good idea to have some sort of indication, on the score, as to how long a piece actually lasts at any given tempo. Many composers in the film, TV and radio industries are commissioned to provide music of a precise length, down to the second.

Many thanks

Open the Display > Play panel (F11), then click on a measure towards the end of the score then click the Play button.
You can see the elapsed time in minutes and seconds. I don't know how accurate this figure is if you add
tempo marks to the score.

If you want to add this information to the score add Staff Text (Ctl- T) then type the minutes and second into the text box.

Does this meet your requirement?
