Thank you both SO much!!  This was incredibly helpful!  I love this forum!

How can I notate a gliss?  Especially between two staffs?  I'm trying to do something like this for harp:

(The image shows what I mean!)

Also, is there a way to connect notes in a staff?  For instance, the right and left hand each have notes that are part of one chord?  Thanks in advance!  :D

Okay, this seems like the best solution to me.  :)  Thanks!  Where is that tool that aggregates rests?

You might try this:
  • With the tool: Pitch Mod, move some instruments so that none are within 2 semitones of another
  • Add playing style: Tenuto to the begining of each staff
  • Set each staff to MIDI channel 10
  • Export to MIDI
  • Import the file you just saved specifying a Track Size of 2 semitones
  • Shift the instrument notes moved in step 1 to their desired place

Well, unfortunately, I have over 30 minutes worth of music to get through + carpel tunnel syndrome, which is why I'm trying not to do this all by hand.  I was hoping that maybe there was a way to automate the process a bit more, like some tool that would automatically split each "note" into a different staff.  So, for instance, Staff 1 has just the high As (open triangle), Staff 2 has just the low As (cymbal crash), etc, and rests are automatically put into all the blank/leftover spaces

All of these suggestions are decent, but ultimately too time consuming.  I have a total of 30 minutes worth of music to get through though, which is why I'm trying not to do this all by hand.

Sure!  All for of these staffs are percussion tracks.

I want it so that there's a different staff for each "note".  So, that would end up being one for snares, one for hihats, one for tambourines, one for triangles, etc.

If it's in Noteworthy, maybe the "Parts" user tool will help?

Nah, parts won't work for this.  It would ultimately be slower.  :/

Hey!  I was hoping that somebody maybe knew how to automatically separate every instrument used on a percussion stuff into individual staffs.  I have a performance coming up in a couple months, and the percussion section has been a pain, and my engraver has asked me to do this, but my wrists hurt too much to do this all manually.  I think Musescore used to do this, but it doesn't now, for whatever reason.  Does anyone know of an instant/automatic way to do this?  Maybe a website I can upload my midis to or something?

You've all been really helpful to me in the past, so thanks again in advance!

How can I make a dotted line or something else like that to indicate the number of bars I want a ritardando or other things of that nature to last?  I should note that this is for a live performer.

Well... I've been up all night and it's 3 AM, doing this one note at a time for 30 minutes of music.  Is there any way to automate the spacer where I can just highlight a chunk of measures and they will automatically get compressed down?  I couldn't find anything like that in the user tool and there is just so, so much music to get through by the end of the week.
11
Oh, wow!  Thank you so much!  ^_^  I'm not sure what I was doing wrong before but I have it now!  I really appreciate it!

Thanks for your help, Lawrie.  I think there's something I'm not understanding here.  I tried that, but all it does (seemingly no matter how I configure it) is make the measures wider!  I really want to find a way to make them narrower.  So, for example, if I have one bar with nothing but 16th notes followed by a bar with two half notes, they'll both be the exact same width on a printed version.
13
Really, all I want to do is squish down the width of the longer measures!  Is there a way I can do that, per chance?  :O
14
Hello!  I was wondering if there is a way to make it so that all measures are roughly of equal length (regardless of how many notes are in them).  I have some passages with lots of 8th, 16th, 32nd notes, etc.  Is there a way I can get them to squish down visually to add a bit more consistency to my score?  Someone who plays in an orchestra is reviewing my scores and told me that it can be confusing for players when the note spacing is like this.  This is what he said:

"See on the first page how rhythms aren't spaced proportionately to their length? While, of course, players read rhythms, rather than spacing, to work out rhythms, it helps immeasurably with sight-reading."

I must admit, it is frustrating when I'm printing the scores and a percussion staff with lots of smaller notes makes it so that only two bars can be printed on one page at a time!  Thanks in advance for your time!

Thanks for the global modification idea!  This will be helpful!

Between enharmonic spelling, forcing naturals and changing key, I can accomplish most of what I need to do.  :)  Since the global mod will allow me to make a specific selection, I think that will help with the random trickier parts.

To give some background, I rely VERY much on ear and rarely bother with key signatures at all in midi- or if I do, they're not necessarily the most helpful ones for live performers.  But, as I said, all of these tools combined should take care of this issue for me.

General Discussion / Auto-Key Signature?
Is there a function anywhere in the user tool (or something I could download, maybe?) which automatically generates and notates a key signature based on the notes present?  Similarly, is there a way do something like take all the F#s in a staff and change them into Gbs, having everything auto-adjust where necessary (for instance, any G natural present would automatically obtain the natural symbol)?

There's a lot of painstaking work involved with some of my key signatures (or lack thereof, in some cases) and some of my performers are better with flats vs sharps, etc.  Thank you once again to anyone who can help me!

Thanks so much!  :D  This is great news!

Hi!  I know this question has been posed many times on here, but I haven't been able to figure this out (or find any recent posts about it).  If it's not too much trouble, could someone please give me a really straightforward, step by step list of instructions on how to do multi measure rests?

<Image Link>

I've read a bunch of older threads on this topic, but there is still a gap somewhere in my understanding!  I don't know anything about boxmark fonts, for isntance and, although I found a few different plugins that seemed promising, I don't know how to install them/utilize them and can't seem to find any full instructions!

Thank you so much for your time!

You guys are amazing, haha!  This is so helpful!  ^_^

Hello!  First of all, let me just say that I'm grateful for the fast and effective solutions you guys offered me last time with my clef question!

I was wondering if someone could recommend a good tool for splitting chords into individual notes (preferably on their own staffs).  Thanks again in advance!

General Discussion / Re: Switching Clef?
Thank you all so much for your quick responses!  ^_^  I haven't had the chance to try these solutions out yet (and have not actually used the user tool yet).  I'll experiment on an unimportant midi to test these things out to save myself hassle if I mess it up, haha!

Thanks for welcoming me to the community.  I REALLY like NWC!  I find it incredibly intuitive and I can work in it so quickly- much more so than any of the other midi programs I've tried.

General Discussion / Switching Clef?
Hey!  Does anyone know of a way to make all the existing notes on a staff conform to a new/different clef?  I'm not just talking about notating in a different clef in general, but having all the notes automatically move to their respective positions on the staff according to the new clef (so, a C remains a C, etc).  Musescore can do this (in that one, you just drag a clef onto the staff and everything instantly conforms/adjusts).  I need this very badly with NWC since my work is going to be performed live in only a few months and I need to find a fast/efficient way put a lot of stuff that was initially written with treble and bass clefs into alto and tenor clefs- preferably without losing any other notation in the process (such as dynamics, performance styles, etc).  I am so incredibly grateful to anyone who can help me with this problem!!
