Thanks, Rick G.  That is the sort of effect I'm trying to achieve, but it's going to be extremely tedious to have to put sustain pedal marking throughout the music that I'm doing :-(  I was hoping to hear that there was a way to modify the "attack" of the notes and perhaps the "decay" of the sounds overall, but I guess there isn't ...

I'd never noticed the "Performance Style" before.  That looks as though it should do what I'm after ... I hope!

Thanks, both.

Insert Performance Style Legato.

My first thought was Reverb, but that didn't do much for me. Sustain does.
Try the attachment. Note that all staves are MIDI Channel 1.
If you want to hear the difference, set the Control Staff to some other MIDI Channel. Muting it does nothing :(

General Discussion / Smoother piano sound during playback
Last post by TonyQ -
I realise that I can use phrase markings to control the smoothness or otherwise of notes, but if I want a smoother piano sound from NoteWorthy Composer, is there a way to do it for the whole of a piece?  At present, all the piano sounds are quite disjointed, whereas I'd like a much smoother sound overall.

Thanks for any suggestions.

The transposition function does the entire active staff. 

If you want to transpose just a few bars of your music up or down an octave, just highlight the notes you need to change and use {control} and {shift} together with either the {up} or {down} arrow.  Seven keystrokes will move you one octave.

Thank you.  Yes I meant to say transposing.  That's valuable info.  I'll give it a try  :-)

Do you mean "transposing"? That affects the playback of a staff. You can use it for octave shifts, by setting to a multiple of 12 (plus or minus) or you can use it to adjust for instruments that are not in the key of C (i.e. trumpets, saxophones, etc.)

There is also a property setting on a clef object called "Octave shift", which will shift playback up or down an octave. It also draws a small "8" above or below the clef.

General Discussion / Clefs and Octaves
Last post by ItmightbeJB -
I'm having trouble with my staff clefs.  There is a setting in 'Staff Properties" called 'Transitioning' and I don't know what it does.  I toyed with it and it actually acted like an octaving command but I think it's different than that now.  Although I do need to know how to change octaves up or down.  But my treble clef on my soprano staff plays the same notes as the bass clef on my tenor staff.  Can you help?
