Controlling number of voices


New user here, so sorry if I've missed something!

When I import a pdf of e.g. a flute part into smartscore midi edition, there should only be one voice as a flute can only play one note at a time.

During recognition, 2 voices were created in places. Caused by slightly misplaced notes in the original I think.

Can I tell the recognition engine that it should put everything in one voice? I could then correct timing errors by hand.

Or can I easily move notes from 1 voice to another?

As a former user of Capscan (part of the Capella stable) I'm most impressed with the accuracy of Smartscore's scanning - much better!

Thanks for your help!

I think what you're looking for is the "Split Voices command (shortcut key H).

I'm going to provide a rather vague reply - often when you start correcting the other errors the voices may take care of themselves in some cases.

If you haven't, get the Using Smartscore PDF manual and have a look through it. There is a lot of info in it.

There is no way of telling SS that the only option is a single voice as far as I know.

Thanks for the reply, but this isn't quite what I need. This only separates two-note chords into separate voices.

The problem is when recognition thinks there are two voices but in fact the notes follow one another in time. I have a screenshot to show this but can't see that I can attach a file as I can in forums for other products eg. Musescore

You need to go through the piece and remove the wrong/doubled notes. Welcome to scanning!

Re: Controlling number of voices


Your description sounds like the notes are very close together in the original such that SS thinks they are attached to the same stem????

Have you tried adjusting the scanning parameters such as resolution, grey scale or straight black and white? There is a SS scanning FAQ on the Musitek site. Note that real high scan resolutions can often make things worse, not better on typical scores. On smaller print scores, higher resolution can help.

Is the copy is very good condition? A poor original very quickly upsets the recognition success rate.

I think to display an image on this forum you need to upload it to a host and then provide the link. I haven't done it but I think that is the idea.

Right you are. Sorry, but with the demise of the choir I used to play with, I haven't been using SSX so much lately. I typed the name while looking at the shortcuts map sheet and got confused.

I think you can do what you want by selecting the two notes, then using the "Join Selected Voices" tool (shortcut Y). That's normally used to tie two notes to the same midi event, but it acts as a toggle: if two joined notes are selected it will "unjoin" them.

I'm also sort of assuming that you also have some sort of metrical error showing for this measure; if so unjoining these two might resolve that as well, or may exacerbate that issue. It may just be that Mikey's suggestion to delete the offending notes and re-create them would be faster.

If you have two notes on a stem, and one of them doesn’t belong there, tap the X key (delete) and the Z key (chord.) Then, you can easily delete that “second” note. That’s quicker than deleting them both, and re-entering the correct one.

It sure would be easier if we could easily post screenshots!
