I’m working in Symphony Orchestra scores and use the voices of one staff for different libraries (e.g. voice 1up: violins 1 not muted, voice 2up: violins 1 muted etc.). I assigned to each voice of the staff his own midi channel and in the endpoint setup I place the right expression map. So far so good.
But: the moment I delete all the notes of the score to start a new piece all voices are gone in the play mode and I have to recreate the several voices in the staff by placing a note in every voice I need (in the example a voice 1up and a voice 2up) and then reassign that voice to the right port and right channel again in the play mode.
Of course there is a workaround by saving one measure with notes in the several voices and to keep that measure when starting a new piece.
My question is: is there another way to set up and keep different voices without keeping notes in the different voices?
