Separating or joining battery parts

• Aug 18, 2022 - 20:59

Hello everybody!
I opened a MIDI file in MuseScore (attached image) and noticed that the drums have a piece on each staff. I want to learn the procedure described i.e., join or separate battery parts. Would it be possible to do this in Musescore?

Thank you very much!

You would need to add a "drumset" staff above the staves you want to combine, and make sure the drumset definition matched the pitch assignments used in the original staves. Then you'd need to use Tools / Implode to combine up to four parts at a time onto that staff. Probably the voice assignments wouldn't be what you want, though. Might be easier to go back to whatever program created the MIDI file and simply merge the tracks there, then re-import it.
