I have written a sketch in a piano part. I want to explode the notes (three in treble, one in bass) to four string instruments. The treble has one rhythm, the bass has another.
When I do this, the top note is copied into the first instrument (good), the second and third notes are copied into the second instrument (bad), and the bass note is copied into the third and fourth instruments (bad).
I believe the different rhythms is the basic source of the problem, because when they all have the same rhythm, Dorico explodes one note each to the four instruments.
It’s common to write a melody with one rhythm, inner parts with another rhythm, and a bass line with a third rhythm. Is there a way to successfully explode that sort of sketch?
