Hello, I’m having trouble with amalgamations specifically for piano. I’d like notes to be combined into a single stem instead of staying two separate voices whenever there is a rhythmic unison regardless of phrasing. I think this need happens in most keyboard music.
For example, in the attached project and screenshot below, I copied the first two measures from Piano 1 and reduced them onto the treble clef of Piano 2. While the notes were reduced to a single staff, notes were not amalgamated when the durations were the same. On the other hand, when I copied just the first measure and then reduce, the notes amalgamate as expected.
What I’d like to see is in Piano 4 (which I manually created) when I make any keyboard reductions, i.e., ignore phrases or allow mid-phrase amalgamations.
