Multiple Parts on the Same Staff - No Playback

Postby Olimar12345 » Sat Mar 16, 2019 11:42 pm

Its me again! Another odd request: I'm working on a score and in order to save paper, I've combined several instruments' parts onto one staff (a la flt 1-2, Horns 1-3, 2-4, etc.). However, some of these staves only playback a single pitch rather than the split. For example, the flute parts only play the top-most notes, but the horn parts will play both notes just fine. What do I need to do to change this setting so that all instruments playback chords when they occur?

Thanks

Thanks for the reply miker. Yes, everything is on its own channel. Back to my example, the horns will play both parts when containing harmony, its instruments like flute and clarinet that aren't playing back in harmony.

if you select "solo flute" as the instrument, it limits to one voice.
for multiple parts you have to use "player" samples.

Wow, I didn't know that, thanks! However, it looks like JABB doesn't play in harmony no matter which instrument I choose. I just tried all of them to no avail, then switched back to Garritan and it worked on the first try. Thanks!
