8va sempre / loco


Is there any way yet to have “8va sempre” which is 8va but with no line, where a “loco” indication is used to cancel it? If not, is this planned? Sometimes it is nice to do this because it is a bit cleaner than having the 8va line in more cramped conditions.

IIRC There is an Expression Map technique that can transpose an instrument by an octave. I wonder if you could make use of this on a selection of notes combined with a Text expression to indicate it to the player.

(Just a shot in the dark based on hazy recollection, but this might be worth investigating.)

No, at the moment this is not available, but it’s something we intend to add in future.
