help! How to enter multi-voice on piano staff on notion Ipad

help! How to enter multi-voice on piano staff on notion Ipad

Postby duoji » Tue Jul 16, 2013 6:58 am

Hi guys
I'm a new notion(iPad version) user. It seems I can't find a way to enter multiple voice on piano staff. Would anyone kindly point me to the right direction? Thanks.

The answer is pretty easy...in the note/rest toolbar, there is a selection for voice 1 and voice 2 (there are only two voices in the app). See the attached image.

Guillermo,
Right now, Notion iPad has two voices in each staff, only.

How did you do that!?

I know the desktop version can use more voices, but not the iPad.

Magic!

Use the buttons from the drum pad, v1 v2 v3 v4.
You must have 1 percussion instrument for select... then you can delete it.

I'd generally stay with 2 voices on all other staves other than percussion; the four voices on the percussion staff are intended for drum set, I believe.

I've put thousands of choral scores into Finale, and the only time I have ever needed to have more than two voices is for Pietro A. Yon's Gesu Bambino.

You very rarely need them for choral work, but it's not uncommon in piano scores. It's nice to have the workaround!

And responding to Guillermo, I don't think there is any way to tweak the rest position.
