complex polyrhythm (7:5)

• Aug 22, 2019 - 03:23

I am writing a snare drum solo in Musescore 3.0.3, and i need a way to notate 7 notes in the space of 5 8th notes. I'm having trouble finding the feature in the program.


Unfortunately, for tuplets in cases like these, where 5 8th notes can't be condensed into a single rest, Musescore gets a bit convoluted. What you'll want to do is create a new measure of 5/8, select the "whole note" of rest in the measure, and press ctrl + 7. This will create your 7-let. You can copy this tuplet and paste it into wherever it needs to be in context of the music. If you mean you want one hand playing 7 while the other plays 5, you can make the 7-let voice two, and enter five eighth notes in voice one.
