A poly and a multi-seq objects are a superimposition of voices or chord-seqs .
They both have one additional tool : the poly tool , which allows to edit all voices at once.
To add a staff :
select the voice or the poly tool ,
to add a new staff,
Cmd click on a staff.
Notice that new staves are automatically added above the "lower" staff .
To delete a staff :
select the voice tool,
click and drag a staff
As in voices editors, staves can be moved up of down, and consequently, respaced.
To respace staves :
click on the clefs of the staves you want to respace
To open a voice or a chord-seq as an internal object from a poly or a multi-seq :
To define clefs individually :
Remember that multiple staves configurations – e.g.
GGFF etc. – do not allow individual staff editing or respacing.
Within a poly, each voice can have its own time signatures, channel and tempo, so as to build polytemporal and metric structures. The score is then organized according to absolute durations.
To change the tempo or midichannel of a voice :
select the voice
enter a value or scroll the mouse up or down in the voice inspector.
To change the meter of a measure :
select it with the measure tool
enter values in the measure inspector.
Within a multi-seq, chord-seqs must be open in internal windows to be edited separately.
