I need to notate unspecified pitches. I would want to use custom staves: one line for a singer, or three lines. After trying and reading in the fantastic updated manual, I understand it that:
- pitched instruments are locked to five line staves (or tabs)
- unpitched percussion instruments use one line staves (separate or in the nice percussion kits) with the limitation that all notes are written on the line. Which makes it impossible to use unpitched percussion instruments as a work around for pitched instruments playing unspecified pitches.
I know I still can write unspecified pitches using hidden noteheads and hidden ledger lines (which demands that I switch between write mode and engrave mode). But still I would like to be able to create custom staves like in this example from Ligeti’s Aventures:
So this is a feature request.
