Silence one instrument temporarily

• Oct 9, 2020 - 13:28

Is there a way to silence one instrument for a few measures? In this example,

I want to silence the trumpet for a few measures to help students understand syncopation.


  1. Select the measures to be silenced.
  2. In the Inspector, select the "Notes" filter.
  3. In the Inspector, disable the "Play" checkbox.

Or perhaps simpler: just mute the instrument in the F10 Mixer? Though that is for the entire score, not just a few measures...
