Linked instruments (f. e. for basso continuo or colla parte)
Hi forum, this is my first post here, so I hope I’ll do it correctly. Please excuse my not so good english; I could have posted in german but maybe this way I’ll reach more developers ;)
I’m currently composing and setting a cantata in Bach style and would like to have a nice playback while composing. This means in my case:
• The basso continuo part should have a cello (8’) and double bass (16’, i.e. ottava bassa) sound, maybe also cembalo (of course there is no automatic figured bass realization, but that’s not the main point here).
• A choral setting has Oboe I and Violin I play colla parte with Soprano etc.
• I can think of other unsion instrument combinations (f. e. all violins and maybe viola together as in BWV 80 2nd movement).
When I just set a completed composition, I can copy and paste from one instrument to another, but while composing it would be nice to have some sort of linked staves but not just for the same instrument (like staff and tablature notation for guitar) but across instruments. Ideally this would allow for octavation and one could make this link temporary so that one can change between movements/sections.
I’ve found this short thread from 2019 but since then not much seems to have happened: https://musescore.org/en/node/298803
