Hear the whole multi instrument score playing, while watching only one part.

• Sep 23, 2018 - 07:05

I have a score of e.g. 4 staves and I want to be able to see only one staff while listening to the whole score being played. Is there a way to do that?
For example:
1) After having created parts for every single instrument, can we open one of them, hit "play", and someway hear all the instruments playing?
or, in another way
2) Can we make some staves invisible so as to watch only few of them but hear them all?
Or is there some other workaround ?
I'm using MuseScore 2.3.2 revision 4592407 on Windows 10 Home.
Thank you for your kind help.

sample of all electronic instruments. So what I did was have every instrument in a category listed and go down in order with each instrument playing a measure of 5 notes starting with low C, G, middle C, G, and high C (to give a range of 2 octaves) with 4 eighth notes and then a quarter note used in each measure for every instrument part...so every measure is played by a different instrument in order to hear a sample of all the instruments in a category. This one has all the electronic instruments labeled (heh, in reverse order... my bad, but the file for pitched percussion is in the correct order)..... Also, note, that I may have changed the sample to go up or down an octave in pitch for particular instruments, either to adjust the pitch range of notes that's better suited for a particular instrument or else to hear a wider range of note pitches for multiple instrument samples that are very similar sounding... (such as soprano steel drums, alto steel drums, etc which all sound very similar or practically sound identical to each other to a person who may not hear subtle differences or not be familiar with the instrument to be aware of the subtle differences of two similar sounding instrument parts)...
