System objects

I am working on an orchestral piece with 3 instrumental soloists and an antiphonal string quartet. I am trying to get system objects above the string section rather than the quartet. But obviously when I select ‘strings’ everything shows above Violin 1 (rather than Violin I).

Anyone have an idea? I thought of changing the quartet instruments to something else then just faking them to be strings (playback doesn’t matter) but…yuck.

Screenshot to help explain, source file in case it helps.

Did you try declaring them as soloist players in Setup mode? I think that should take care of that.


awesome! Thanks for the quick help. I didn’t even know that was there.
