How to make MuseScore play a subsequent coincident note of the same pitch distinctly?

• Jan 17, 2023 - 22:22

While a note is played and held in one voice, in another voice, a note of the same pitch is to sound after one or several beats.

I am using Linux and MuseScore 3.2.3. When the first note is of a longer duration and held during the occurrence of the second note, the second note is not played distinctly, and I just hear the first note held throughout the entire duration of the two notes.

Is there a setting to make MuseScore play the second note distinctly, or must I make the first note end before or when the second note is placed?

Thanks in advance.


  1. Update to MuseScore 4.0.1, the latest version. 3.2.3 is many years out of date at this point
  2. What instrument/sound are you using? Could you attach a specific score with this issue?
