I have been using Scorecloud for a few days now, and so far I am very impressed. But I am having an issue with getting notes in the correct voices and, therefore, getting ties in the correct places. Please take a look at either the pdf or .scld files I attached. I played this passage in using my midi keyboard, and measures one and two are notated correctly: the 2nd B in m. 1 is tied to the whole note B in m. 2, and the G in m. 1 is tied to the whole note G in m. 2. To make this work, I believe Scorecloud put the B in m. 2 into subvoice 1, and the 2nd B in m. 1 is in both voice 1 and subvoice 1 (it has two stems), so it could be tied to the whole note B.
Now, m. 8 and the pickup in m. 7 are supposed to exactly like mm. 1 and 2, but I cannot get the Bs to be tied together, only the Gs. This part of the passage did not get transcribed exactly right (I think my rhythm was a little off when playing it) so I had to do some manual editing, and I cannot get the ties right. I think that if I could get Scorecloud to make the 2nd B in m. 7 a part of both voice and 1 and subvoice 1 (just like m. 1), then I could get the tie to work.
So, the question is, how do I switch a note from one voice to another, or put a note into multiple voices? Once that is done, how do I put in a tie and make sure that the tie is attached to the right notes?
I have another related question. I tried to work around this problem by first recording the same passage as midi into REAPER, quantizing the position and note ends of each note so everything had exactly the right values, exporting the midi file, and importing the file into Scorecloud. The midi file imported correctly as a snippet in Scorecloud, but when I clicked analyze it gave me the following error message:
Fel under analys:
In = of (NIL 2) arguments should be of type NUMBER.
What is going wrong with the analysis of the midi file?
One final question: is there (or could there be) an input quantize function in Scorecloud? When I recorded the passage into Scorecloud, some of the eight-note passages were interpreted as quintuplets with rests (I guess my playing was slightly inaccurate). If I could tell Scorecloud to interpret every note as an eighth note or longer, this would note have been a problem.
Sorry for the long post, and thank you for your help! Scorecloud has some features no one else has, and could be the best notation software hands-down if a few bugs and needs are addressed.
