pitch bends before notes

• May 31, 2023 - 14:21

Is there a feature to place a pitch bend before a note? I can write it as a note going up x amount of steps, but I think that can sometimes be confusing how far the player should go if it is supposed to be very specific. I have not found another forum about this, so if this is already a topic I would love to be directed there.


Are you talking about guitar? There is a specific bend notation for guitar you can find on the guitar palette. For other instruments, the way to notate a bend starting at a specific pitch is with a glissando from the arpeggios and glissandi palette. You write the start and end pitches and add a gliss between them. For non-specific bends, use the other symbols on that same palette.
