How to Notate Whistling

• Mar 22, 2022 - 20:26

There's a piece I want to transcribe by ear, but one of the parts includes someone whistling. How do I notate this? I don't see an option in any of the instrument pallets.


No special notation should be needed, just enter the notes normally and add the text "whistle". If you're trying to find an appropriate playback sound to use, just select the Whistle sound in the Mixer. If the part is for whistling the whole way through, add a voice staff but set the playback sound that way. If it's just a single passage in a part that is otherwise played or sung, use the instrument change from the Text palette to change the sound to whistle in the same way (select voice as the instrument, but use whistle as the sound).
