String Contrabass won't play

Postby tdwyer » Thu Jan 05, 2012 11:17 am

Hi,

I'm a complete newbie trying out the Notion3 demo. When I import a MusXML score everything plays except the double basses. The notation is there but no sound from DB, The Mixer reveals no DBs. Yet if I make a new score from scratch I get the DBs. Is it to do with the name of the track or what?

You may want to go to Score>Setup... and click on gearwheel icon to the left of the double basses. This will open the Staff Settings window. Make sure that you have it assigned to the correct instrument.

I agree! :)

Most of the time when all the other instruments play but one instrument does not produce any sound it is a matter of the staff being set incorrectly or the notes on the staff being out of range . . .

Lots of FUN! :ugeek:

Thanks Brian. Your solution worked. So the Contrabass part had better be changed to Bass before Importing. But I never before came across Bass as the preferred name for Contrabass or Double Bass...
