Precise pause at beginning of score?

• Nov 17, 2021 - 15:56

Is there a way to add a precise pause (e.g. 1 second) at the beginning of the score? The score is a play-along track; the pause will allow the performer to get situated at their instrument. It doesn't seem possible to insert a breath or caesura before the first note of a score.


Indeed, you can't add a caesura before the first note, but you can add a measure or measures (Add>[One] Measure[s]) and adjust the length to give whatever interval is necessary. You could even add notes to give an audible "count in".

Any reason not to just use the count-in feature (see View / Play Panel)? You can even turn the metronome volume down to zero so it's a silent count-in.
