Mapping chord voices to instruments- overlapping notes

I have just upgraded from Cubase 6.5 to 8Pro. Over the years I have been trying to find a simple way to create block chords and then map each voice (i.e S,A,T, B) to separate individual instruments.

I tried doing this in Cubase 8 following the process given below:

  1. Set up a chord track
  2. Create a chord progression
  3. Add an instrument track and load an instrument
  4. Drag the chord track to the instrument track. At this time all the chord voices play from the instrument track.
  5. Set the track to ‘Single Voice’ and set it to Bass, Tenor, Alto or Soprana as the case may be.
  6. Repeat for the other voices.

Although this works well, there are a couple of issues:

  1. There are numerous overlapping notes created on each instrument track. Although it sounds okay, chord movement to the next chord sounds slow and unnatural.
  2. The keys cannot be transposed to a higher or lower octave.

Is anybody else facing the same problems? Any ideas how to resolve the issue relating to the overlapping notes. I have tried to use the ‘delete overlapping notes (mono)’ but it does’nt entirely delete the overlapping notes.

Your help would be greatly appreciated.
