Noten en rusten toevoegen aan de notenbalk vereist vier eenvoudige stappen:
Om noten toe te voegen die beginnen/eindigen op verschillende tijdstippen (polyfonie): zie Stemmen.
Voor akkoorden, blijf hier verder lezen
Selecteer eerst een noot, of rust op de partituur als uitgangspositie voor de noteninvoer.
Als u geen uitgangspositie hebt geselecteerd zal de curor zich aan het begin van de partituur bevinden als u schakelt naar de (see below).
Noteninvoer in MuseScore vervangt de bestaande noten/rusten in een maat door uw invoer (overschrijven i.p.v. invoegen).
The "N" button at the left on the
Note Input toolbar indicates whether you are in
note input mode. To enter or leave
note input mode, you can click on the button, or you can use the shortcut N. To leave
note input mode, you can also hit Esc.
note input mode, select the duration you need from the
Note input toolbar, or use the corresponding shortcut.
Note that if you have an irregular rhythm division (such as three eighth notes in the time of two), see Tuplet
The shortcuts for selecting the duration are as follows:
For all instruments (except unpitched percussion), you can add note pitches using the mouse by clicking directly on the staff. (For instructions specific to percussion see Drum notation). However, you may find it quicker to use a MIDI keyboard (see below), or your alphabetical computer keyboard. The following examples use the latter method.
Enter pitches by typing the corresponding letter on your keyboard: C D E F G A B C
0 (Zero) creates a rest: for example, typing C D 0 E gives the result shown below. Notice that the duration you select for the notes (quarter/crotchet notes in this example) also determines the duration of the rest (quarter/crotchet rest).
During note input, the cursor automatically advances in the score. If you want to add a chord note to your previous entry, hold Shift and enter a note name: C D Shift+F Shift+A E F
To create chords with notes of different durations, see Voices.
If you want to create a dotted note, press .. For example 5 . C 4 D E F G A
When you type a note on the keyboard, MuseScore places it closest to the previous note entered (above or below). When entering chords, though, the new notes are added above the current note (bottom-up).
If either of these leads to a note ending up in the wrong octave, move it up or down by using the following shortcuts:
Other useful editing shortcuts available in
note input mode:
You can also insert pitches using a MIDI keyboard.
The pitch should be added to your score.
Note: The MIDI keyboard enters one note or chord at a time. This mode of note input (often called "step-time entry") is fast and reliable. Some notation software try to interpret "real-time entry", in which the musician plays a passage and the software tries to produce notation. However, such results are generally unreliable. MuseScore focuses on more reliable forms of note input.
If you have multiple MIDI devices connected to your computer, you may need to inform MuseScore which is the MIDI keyboard. Go to Edit → Preferences... (Mac: MuseScore → Preferences...). In the preferences dialog, click on the I/O tab and select your device under the section labeled "PortAudio".
Notes within the playable range of an instrument or voice part appear black, while those extending beyond the normal range of an instrument are marked red. For some instruments, the range depends on the skill of the musician. For these instruments, notes outside the range of an early amateur appear dark yellow, and notes outside the typical range of a professional appear red.
The colors are informational and appear on the computer screen, but not on printed copies. To disable note colors, choose Edit → Preferences... (Mac: MuseScore → Preferences...), click on the Note Input tab, and unmark "Color notes outside of usable pitch range".
Notepart of the inspector)
Note: In the Inspector, Small in the 'Note' section reduces only the note head size; for chords, the stem, beam, and flag sizes are reduced as a whole.
If there is only one note, the best way is to select it and change it with either mouse, or keyboard.
If there is more than one note and no rhythm change, you can use either transposition (if the interval is strictly the same), or re-pitch mode.
If your accidentals seem strange, you could also try Respell pitches mode (see Accidental: Respell pitches).
