I am using musescore (which is superb) as a vehicle for choral part learning. I want to be able to re-play (eg) a tenor part which is "unison" (tenor1/tenor2 singing the same notes) for say 90% of the piece, with a few (maybe only 2 or three) bars divisi. (The point is I want to be able to play the tenor 1 or tenor 2 part separately, or with different instruments). I realise that I can:
1. Have a score with a stave for each tenor part. Play back is then simple, but it is a bit clumpy, and printouts are huge. It is a bit over the top if the divisi is (say) 3 or 4 bars out of 50.
2. Use voices. The problem is that each voice has to be entered in full (effectively the same as having a stave per part). Again a bit horrid if the divisi is only small compared to the whole piece.
What I would like to see is something like:
A common voice - used by all divisi voices - so that I could enter (say) voice 0 meaning it will play back whichever voice part I choose. Voice 1/2/3/4 would then play back all voice 0 notes plus their own voice part (ie voice 1/2/3/4/).
Maybe there are other ways of achieving this but I hope my requirement is clear??
Brilliant programme, thank you to all the developers.
