I’m using the “every-flow-equals-a-new-song” for an event I’m arranging and I’ve just realised I need to take some percussion into account.
I have percussion instruments eg Sus Cym that I don’t wan’t played by Player 1 in every flow. Obviously, I can’t move the Sus Cym between players or it will move it in every flow. I feel like my best bet is to create an extra Sus Cym in each player who needs one.
So, the issue is that I need to rename the Sus Cym somehow so that it doesn’t show as “Sus Cym 2” etc.
If I’ve ever needed to do this with a non-percussion instrument eg Trumpet, so that I don’t have Tpt 1 and Tpt 2 but rather Tpt and Tpt (don’t ask why), I’ve just put a space at the beginning of the second Tpt and problem solved. However, with percussion, there are going to be times when there will be a boxed Instrument Change Label and it will show the spaces that I add (sometimes 3-4 spaces if there’s a Sus Cym in four players).
Can anyone suggest a way around this short of making each flow a separate project, or, adding a non-use Cym and renaming it?
