Swing 8ths For No Reason

Post by fijimorgan » Mon Jan 11, 2021 10:33 pm

I'm not sure why but Finale keeps playing swing 8ths in my drum part even though I marked it as Latin. I've erased all notations of Latin and set HP to none. How can I eliminate the swung 8ths?

How was the Drum part created? We might need to see the file to help diagnose the problem.

I manually typed it in. I’ll upload the file.

The drums are swinging practically all the way due to an Expression you assigned called Soul Groove to the percussion staff in Bar 2. It has a swing value for playback set to 100. Either get rid of that expression, or change it to not have a swing playback setting.

Ah, that's right. I copied the swing expression and renamed it. Thanks. That was dumb on my part.

Glad I could help. Seeing a file is usually the only way to make a good suggestion as to the cause of the problem. I'm glad you were willing to do that.

I do look at the "other" forum for my own amusement, but I don't post there as I have many issues with the format used, and have had discussion with the MakeMusic powers about my concerns. I noticed you posted about this issue there as well. You might want to report your findings there to put that topic to rest. Just a suggestion.

I only answer questions on this Forum. I think there is a wealth of experience here that is a great help to many, including me.

Thanks for the advice. I usually post in both forums just to get the quickest responses.
