Have two seperate measure durations for instruments

• Oct 2, 2022 - 21:23

I'm trying to replicate what is done in the screenshot attached below, the time signature of the piece is 2/4, but the main sheet doesn't fit into that 2/4, yet the ossia does. I'm curious as to how I could have a specific measure duration in the main instrument but have a different one in the other. Thank you in advance.

I would say that those measures have identical duration. The lower one has a 13-plet in the space of the two eighths in the upper measure. To enter this you would need to have a rest of a quarter note in the lower stave starting on the second eighth. Then use Add->Tuplet->Other to turn it into a 13-plet. with the type ratio set to 13/8.
