Splitting Staves

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

Musician offers the following commands in the Staff menu to split a staff into two or more staves, with certain ways of distributing the notes between the staves:

B816If a piano or keyboard staff combines the notes for both the right and left hands, then use the Split Hands command to divide the notes into right- and left-hand staves.
B816A MIDI file normally combines the notes for all drum instruments on one staff, and misrepresents the notes as pitches on a 5-line staff. You can use the Split Drums command to divide the percussion notes into separate one-line staves per each instrument.
B816If a staff combines a melody and accompaniment, use the Split Melody and Accompaniment command to separate them into two staves.
