Move notes from bass to treble

edited March 2015 in ScoreCloud 4 / Studio
I have a piece which I have reduced to two voices. Voice 1 is in the treble and Voice 2 in the bass. In one bar analyser decided that all the notes should appear in the bass (with ludicrous extension for high treble notes). The notes are in voice 1 witht eh lower notes in voice 2 but all still appear in the bas clef.

    You can move notes between voices by going into the Voices/Mixer Panel and drag the individual notes from one voice/staff to another.

    It sounds strange for the analysis to behave like that though. If you could send us a link to the song (little orange email button in the bottom right corner) to that'd be really helpful for us to improve the voice analysis!

    Hope this helps!

  • Can't seem to do that. The notes stay put. I have sent a link as asked.

    Hi again!

    This animation shows how this is supposed to work. Notice the little note in the mouse cursor that indicates that you are hovering a note.


    Does this work?

    We'll take a look at the files you sent!

    We looked at your files now!

    This image shows how you can drag a voice segment from one staff to another.


    As answered per email:

    The problem you are facing is unfortunately not entirely uncommon. This is partly due to bugs that we are currently trying to solve, but even so, there will always be cases when the analysis (or another human being) cannot come up with voicing that you expect.

    In the future, we will add options to set preferences for the voice analysis, but in a case like this, it is a matter of bad performance in the voice separation analysis :-(.
    For this complexity of piano input, ScoreCloud can be expected to deliver OK results without too much need for editing!

    Mostly this is related MIDI issues, such as latency and system related sustain, and you generally get better results if you do not play to fast and
    avoid too much ornamentation.

    Currently, the way to address the issues is to make use of the features of the voice editing.

    Here is a video on Voice Editing in ScoreCloud Studio:
