Chord Symbol playback overlaps even when Duration is set to "next symbol"
NOTE: Links updated 11-29-21
I wrote this piece last Wednesday morning for a student I would see that evening. And somehow it has some slight anomalies with the duration of Chord Symbol playback. NOTE: Though my intent was to create a lead sheet for ukulele I set the ukulele part to "piano" because the built-in ukulele patch sounds unpleasantly like harpsichord. Just to be clear: that's why there's no ukulele sound and why I assigned the chord symbol/harmony part to a piano sound.
Now, on to the issue itself ...
An esteemed college and astute listener noted a detail that had escaped me. In this score Chord Symbol duration playback overlaps the next chord symbol, usually by a beat ... and by an eight note when there are two chords per measure. I hear this even when the symbols' Duration properties are set to "Until next chord symbol."
In order to easily hear it obviate the overlap by setting the Mixer's "harmony" chord symbol sub-channel to Reed Organ (or an alternate patch with infinite sustain.)
Unfortunately neither my colleage nor I can recreate this Chord Symbol duration anomaly from scratch, but I'm suspicious that the issue is an artifact of:
a) the addition of parts
b) editing of one or more parts
c) changing chord symbol visibility properties in the main score
d) changing visibility properties in the Parts
Does anyone else hear the overlap and have an explanation?
NOTE: My initial post here included the following points, which were in error so I moved them below so they don't distract from the main point:
e) pasting the chord symbols to the Ukulele part from the main score
Regarding d) be forewarned:
when I deleted a few chord symbols from the Ukulele part, the situation grew more bizarre ... in ways I'm not inclined to attempt to characterize.
the deletion a chord symbol in the Uke part also deleted it's counterpart in the main score! I find that odd considering that MuseScore does not initially imbuePart with chord symbols, so I'd never had expected some sort of linkage would exist after pasting chord symbols into a Part.
