Templates


I have a project right now involving my wind band with 26 individual instruments. I have scanned a piece suitable for this constallation and in the score manager set up the instruments and their transpositions. It took a little time so it would be advantageous to have a template to define the prerequisites for the band and save having to feed all this information in again. I know that there are templates and styles included with SmartScore but is it possible to create specific templates to fit the individual situations?

Re: Templates


At least in my older version of SSXPro, you can create new "Instrument Templates", which as the others are what is displayed in the System Manager "Instrument Templates" dialog for assignments to "parts" in the SM. If that's what you're interested in then yes you can create new Instrument templates, although I'm pretty certain you already knew that given that you've done the work previously.

But if I'm reading your question correctly, you'd like to define something like an "Ensemble Template" with all those Instruments in place from first to final system which you could then assign en masse to a newly scanned score. If so, I am not aware of any way to do that.

If, on the other hand you want a "score template" with all of the aforementioned instruments assigned to parts in the proper order for a new, empty score for you to add the music manually, or perhaps cut and paste from a newly scanned score, then you could create an empty score with some number of measures from scratch and save that as a [sign in to see URL] file. I've done that for a couple of scores in the past, but SSX isn't really intended as a "notation" program and I did it more as a learning exercise to see what I could do with the software--I own what was once at least a real notation program and generally did any score production with that and usually used SSX on preprinted scores to get midi files for the parts as practice aids for our singers and instrumentalists.

Not sure if that helps or not, but at least the conversation has started.

Re: Templates


I see that the ones included with SS are .tpl files, obviously for "template".

Have a look at section [sign in to see URL], Page 61, in the SS user manual about Instrument Templates.
I've never used this feature so I'm posting the little I have just observed! I don't see anywhere to save this as a unique template file but it does keep the transposition you set for a particular instrument so you don't have to go through that each time.

If this doesn't help, I suggest you contact Musitek support directly by email.
