Score Editor question

    Can anyone tell me how to undo a tie in Score Editor. I mean I have a note which is played (and finely edited) to be a value of, say, 3 quarter notes - i.e. a dotted half note. In the score it's a bunch of eighth and sixteenth notes tied to make up the correct value. I've tried deleting the note in the midi editor and then drawing in a new one. No change.

    I figure if I can untie the notes I can get what I want. Any ideas?

    TIA Jay

    What is the score quantization value? Try reducing it to about the minimal value of your played note to appear on the score.
    Enabling the Interpretation in the score inspector could also help.

    Hi Atlas

    Quantization doesn't help - anyway, I have been through the part in Midi Editor and all notes are very tight. Interpretaion needs to be on otherwise it goes completely strange. I need to be able to delete ties and rests. Any more ideas?

    Thanks for your help so far.

    If toggling the interpretation checkbox doesn't help, what about toggling the Syncopation checkbox in the score inspector?

    Hi Eli

    Nope - syncopation don't do it!! There has to be a way of deleting ties and unwanted rests?

    Regards, Jay

    Try double clicking on the individual notes in the Score editor to experiment with the Force, defeat, or default settings for attributes and syncopation that are available in the Note Attributes window. I think it's just a matter of getting the right combination.

    And you can control rests to a certain degree from the Rests tab of the part box.

    If the OP's original example is in fact how things are (a dotted half note expressed by multiple sub-values), it may be caused by other notes or user rests affecting the visual. MIght look at what else is happening then.

    Make sure that your region start on the bar/downbeat.
    Length of notes could have an influence as well...
