Hi, I have a problem related to cluster notation. I saw that there are some posts on the subject, but they didn’t seem to be able to solve my problem.
So, the thing is that when I want to notate a Cluster I simply change the standard note head to rectangular note head. This type of notation is fine for me, as I don’t have to distinguish between different types of Cluster, so I only have to specify the upper and lower pitch.
The appearance is therefore as follows:
In this case I have only entered the notes A2 and C3. Now the problem starts with the playback. If I want to hear all the notes within this range, I have to enter them manually. Something like this:
Then I hide the note heads and the stem
and add a vertical line to create the stem manually. This workflow is not ideal but it works, as long as the cluster does not have a staccato. In this case, I have not figured out how to hide a staccato point from a single note belonging to a chord.
So, the thing that would make everything easier would be the option of not splitting stems with multiple altered unisons (like the second screenshot I posted). With a single altered unison you can choose between single stem and split stem, but apparently not when it comes to multiple altered unisons… Is there a way to do thit?
