How do I enter close harmony with notes on different beats? 2010-02-02 06:34 am I am transposing the music my dad played in a trombone trio; he passed away last year, and we are finding his music. I am having problems entering some of his music. The music is in one staff with the accompaniment in another staff. For example, if on the first beat of a measure (4/4 time) the first trombone plays a half note, the second trombone plays a quarter note followed by another quarter note the next beat, and the third trombone plays a half note, my software does not want to allow the entry of the second trombone part.Or, if on the first beat the first trombone has two quarter notes, the second trombone has a dotted quarter followed by an eighth note, and the third trombone has a half note, and on the third beat all parts have a half note, the half note is played back as an eighth note. Multiple staffs are not an option; the music cannot even be entered properly if only to look at and not to play.Any ideas?
