Triplets

I need to create two triplets for counts 1 and 2 (6 total notes), followed by a half note for counts 3 & 4. When I try creating the first triplet, it spreads the 3 notes over both counts 1&2, which doesn't leave me enough space for the second triplet. Anyone know a way to do this?

    Hi!

    I'm guessing that you are making a quarter note triplet, and what you want is two eighth note triplets.

    There are several ways to do this, using beat-wise input or manual writing. If you are using manual unput, select the eighth note and then click the triplet button.

    Hope this helps!

    This gives me a chance of telling about one of my favourite functions! Select a note, hit Ctrl+Alt+number key to divide selected note into they same number of parts. For example a selected 4th, using Ctrl+Alt+3 will become a triplet of 8ths.
  • Thanks! I swear I tried that before, but anyway...it's working now.
