How to combine multiple instruments/players into a single part?

Hello dear colleagues and team,
I need your assistance here. Thank to those of you who are going to give me a hint! :slight_smile:
I’m preparing an oratory scores for performance and the conductor asked me to combine the whole percussion parts into a single one, which can be given to the percussionists in order to give them an opportunity to follow each other’s parts. I need something like a conductor score for the percussion instruments, but including the Tacet in the movements where these instruments aren’t performing.
Is it possible such thing to be done in Dorico Pro 5?

Best wishes,
Thurisaz :slight_smile:

I would try making a new “score” layout, checking all percussion players and all flows.
But I’m not at the computer at the moment, and might be wrong… :wink:

I don’t think this is possible. Tacet will only appear if all players for a particular flow are silent.

Hi @YourMusic.Pro,
Thank you for the reply! :slight_smile:
It helped me to make it work. :slight_smile:

Setup Mode > Layouts (Create new Layout) > Include All Flows > Select all Percussion Instruments…

Hi @Janus,
Thank you for your reply! :slight_smile:
There are movements in the oratory without any percussion instruments. There I need the “Tacet
I was able to achieve what I need. :slight_smile:

Best wishes,

Sorry, I misinterpreted the request. I thought that you had multiple percussionists and wanted to show tacet only for those who were not required for a particular flow.

I needed to achieve the following:

Now all percussion are within a single Part Layout. :slight_smile:
