View playback in one part while playing all parts

• Dec 17, 2020 - 18:04

Either this is already possible, or it is a feature suggestion. It would be nice to be able to play through a part (that is, see the notes for only one instrument, or a small number), while hearing the entire score play back so as to hear the context of an individual part.


Create the part (Edit->Parts)
look at the part and open the mixer (F10)
Uncheck the "Play part only" box in the top left corner

Thanks. The checkbox in the mixer is the thing I'd completely missed. I also wasn't aware of the visibility controls in the Instruments dialog.

This must be for a paid version of Musescore? I see the Play part only button and I am unable to uncheck it. I also read this post and another post related to this topic and tried each suggestion. While the music on the score is hidden, Musescore still plays back all parts on the score.

I even thought selecting a section would play only that part, but it always plays all parts.

I have checked I have most recent update. But if I am missing something I should have changed, I would love to hear about it. Thanks in Advance

There isn't a paid version of Musescore.
See above: open the mixer (F10) check/ Uncheck the "Play part only" box in the top left corner, or set (via Mixer) Solo.
Can you attach here the *.mscz file you are having problems with?
