I have this rhythm that continues through most of the piece but am unsure whether to notate it as 6/8 or 4/4 with triplets. Is there a difference? I suspect having it in 6/8 would be much tidier and user friendly for the player. But does it create a difference in feel? I can only play it in on 4/4 otherwise the 6/8 metronome beat Dorico is feeding me is throwing me off.
If it should be in 6/8 for clarity but I can only record in 4/4, what’s the quickest way to remove the triplets and convert the notes to be where they should be in 6/8 measures? I thought it would have been a simple “click all the triplet 3’s and hit delete” but that just makes a mess of everything. There must be a simple solution, right?
