Create measures before bar 1?

Is it possible to add pick-up measures before bar 1?

Thank you,

Yes. Look in the project settings

Thanks! and would the best way be to “display bar offset”?

Yes. Display Bar Offset for the number of bars you want before bar 1. It works great even after you have started a project.

Perfect for creating a manual count-in as well. A negative bar before zero with four hits of a stick.

Then the bar numbers stay correct and you know that by bar nine your chorus will start because as we know:

”don’t bore us, give us the chorus!” :blush:


Ah great idea for the count-in! Yep definitely what to keep the numbers lined up! no extra maths for me :slight_smile:
