Can't fit all the notes I want onto a Bar while maintaining the correct tempo

• Oct 13, 2014 - 17:17

So I'm trying to transcribe a song so that I can convert it to a midi file as I only have the pdf of the sheet music, however I am unable to fit all notes on the treble cleff without ruining the tempo on the bass cleff. Attached is the song I am trying to transcribe/ copy; how would I go about doing this-
Many Thanks

I do realise that my wording is completely wrong, however I am not very experienced in the 'notation field'; what I am trying to say is that the timesignature for the sheet music doesn't allow me to write the notes (all in one bar) that I want to, and when I change it to allow it in the treble cleff e.g. to 30/8, the bass cleff's notes do not 'match up' correctly and musescore chucks in rests to make up for the missing notes.

Which measure are you having trouble with? That all looks like very simple 4/4 to me - I don't see any measures in 30/8? Did you perhaps upload the wrong file?

It's possible somewhere in the file you meant to upload there might be multiple voices, which I guess could creating the illusion that there are more notes than fit if you don't understand how that is meant to work. See [[nodetitle:Voice]] in the Handbook for information on how to enter that notation. But the file you uploaded doesn't contain any examples of multiple voices that I can see.

I just entered the notes with the mouse, one measure. And used the beams palette to break the 4 eighth into groups of 2, then copy/paste, and adjust the 4th meaure, and added a line break after measure 4 and a time sig to the 1st note, for which I modigfied the text (but forgot to adjust the BPMs)
