Reduce some of the beams

Post by Lou » Wed May 04, 2022 5:15 pm

I have a group of 8 32nd notes which are beamed together. I would like to separate it into 2 groups of 4 notes each by removing 2 of the 3 beams between them and keeping the lowest beam. How can I accomplish this? I have version 25.

Special Tools Tool > sub-tool Secondary Beam Break Tool.

If you have gazillion measures with this particular beaming, then do the first measure, and use the Copy Filter to copy only Secondary Beam Breaks to the other measures.
