Hand clapping for instrumentalists. How do I get it to notate in the score for each instrument?

• Jan 22, 2021 - 01:11

Hi. I am grateful to the MuseScore developers. I have successfully written a few short band arrangements with the program. My question: In the arrangement I'm working on now, I need the musicians who are not playing to clap on beats 2 and 4 for eight bars. How do I write this in, so that it plays back sounding as hand claps and not as the instruments?


Adding the notation is easy, just change the noteheads to x or whatever in the palette or Inspector. To change the playback sound, add a Change Instrument text from the palette.
