I’m in my trial of Dorico and enjoying it so far, but wondering if the following is possible:
We have an arrangement for four bassoon players of a couple of Led Zeppelin songs that run together. However, at some point in rehearsal, musicians 1 and 3 worked it out so they wouldn’t both play the solo part for both songs. What I would like to do is keep the solo part in the top line of the score, but create parts that reflect the swap.
Put another way, Bassoon 1 in the score shows the solo line throughout, but Mark’s part is a combination of the Bassoon 1 and Bassoon 3 parts. I’ve tried it with different flows, but haven’t really gotten the desired effect. Is this possible, and if so, how would you go about it in Dorico?
Usually, I would just write the solo line in a different part, but it might be nice to have the solo in the top line regardless of who is playing it. Certainly not a dealbreaker, but is there a way to accommodate this complex workflow?
