Add A Tuplet

  1. How to do it: proceed as described in Add A Note  or in Add A Rest, depending on your needs; set its initial duration to a quarter/crotchet. In the Editor, check Begin a tuplet on this cluster and fill-in the fields below the check box. Continue adding/changing the needed rests, notes or chords; the tuplet will close automatically.
  2. Hints:
    • to get an eights/quaver triplet you Put 3 eights instead of 2;
    • you choose an alternate spelling for your tuplet by setting its note value (musical duration) and instead of beats: Put 5 eights instead of 2 creates the same tuplet as Put 5 sixteenths instead of 4, but they are spelled differently;
    • see Clusters and Notes for more info.
