I have following situation: I have to engrave a symphony. There is one percussion player who has to play several instruments. Vibraphone, kit, Kuhglocken, Gongs
The percussion kit contains instruments like Bass Drum, several cymbals, Snare Drum, Caxixis, … I use the percussion kit in order to have a 5-line-system all the time (which is mandatory by the composer). BTW the moving from 5- to 1-line systems back and forth all the time would result a lack of clarity.
So I am confused by the labeling of the system:
The percussionist starts with vibraphone – so the staff is called Vib.
As soon the percussion player has to switch to Snare, the staff is called Perc.
When the player has to play Kuhglocken, the staff is called »Kuhglocken« (no kit instrument).
Changing to Bass Drum, the staff again is called Perc.
And so on …
Is there any possibility, e.g. to label it »Perc.« all the time, cause its the PERCussion player who plays Vib, BD, Gong etc? Than it would be consistent and logic.
Or is there any possibility to label the different instruments in the kit? The kit called »Perc.« itself is just a workaround by the engraver, but doesn’t have any impact on the instruments organisation of the percussion player.
Or is there a possibility to change the staff labels in engrave mode manually?
Thanks in advance!
PS: I know that I could label every Instrument as Perc. but thats a confusing method.
