Writing multiple voices in one stave, writing vertically aligned notes
In Mus2, it is possible to write notes for different voices by selecting the voice number from the tool located at the bottom of the tool bar.
While arranging the notes on the stave, the notes that are desired to be aligned should be placed by selecting the second, third or fourth voices. The default value in the program is always the 1st sound.
As of Mus2 2.1.6, sounds can be displayed on the page with their own colors. Color or all black option can be provided with “Note Color” on the settings screen. You must exit the program and re-enter it for the change to take effect.
Using rest sign in the 2, 3, 4th voices
If a sequence has been made using the second voice and it is desired to add a rest sign, the rest sign should be chosen as the second voice and it should be added to the portrait first. Otherwise, it will cause the stringed notes to shift.
A red bar will appear when you first select any of the 1, 2, 3 or 4 voices and hover the cursor over the staff to see which voices the notes are placed on the staff using. Notes that are vertically aligned will not show the red bar because they contain multiple voices.
To see two overlapping notes, you can use the Adjust individual note position tool in the Hand tool and shift the position of the note.
During playback, Mus2 plays the overlapping sounds together. It will play all sounds on every pass, whether senio or repetitions are used.
