I wonder if there is a way I can emulate this particular part of the score I am looking at?
I understand that, in Dorico, beat lengths are fixed across all staves in your project, regardless of the time signature. Thus, the barlines on a staff with 12/8 will not align in the vertical time grid with those in 4/4
Is there any way of emulating what the composer intends below, namely that each beat has a triplet feel for some instruments, and has written those parts in 12/8 and reverts to 4/4 a few bars later. However, other instruments carry on playing in 4/4 throughout.
Of course in Dorico I will probably have to stay with 4/4 throughout for all instruments and explicitly write triplets for those parts that the composer had written as 12/8 … even though I suppose he wanted to make the score a little less cluttered with triplet beams and whatnot.
