When selecting a trumpet section of 3 players, how does NotePerformer know how many players there are? If the music is set for a2 for example, does NotePerformer only play two trumpets? And when it goes back to tutti?
My second question is how to best consolidate group section players on a full score. When they are all playing tutti, a single staff listing 3 players is fine. However, if I break them off into two or three voices (on the same staff) how does NotePerformer interpret this? (as three trumpets or three sections?)
Would it make sense to use the divisi function with brass (even though divisi is traditionally for strings only)? Again, if the parts are tutti, or a2, how would NotePerformer know how many players there are? And when they are broken out into divisi will they play as single instruments?
Obviously, the best solution may be to give each instrument a separate line (however do I select single player or section players for each one?). I’m trying to find if there is a practical way to consolidate them (as seen in many scores) onto one staff and still have NotePerformer handle the proper playback numbers.
I wish I could articulate this problem better though maybe you can understand the dilemmas I’m facing.
Is there a video demo outlining the best practice for the above scenarios?
