writing 12/8 4/4 simultaneously?

Postby musician_ » Sat Nov 24, 2018 11:49 pm

Hello. IS there any automatic way of writing simultaneously 12/8 and 4/4, if possible, hidding one of the two time signatures (for example, if the main measure is 12/8, hidding thr 4/4, or vice versa). Additionally: If you write a 4/4 passage using triplets, is there any automatic way of writing each triplet, one by one?
Thank you

in my late post, I meant "instead of designing each triplet, one by one".

Enter a triplet, copy/paste it, and use the repitch tool to alter the notes.

You can give a staff an independent time signature to obtain simultaneous 4/4 and 12/8. You can make the 12/8 display as 4/4 if you like, but I wouldn't.

As far as writing triplets in succession automatically, both Simple and Speedy have a way of doing sticky triplets.
