Hey Finale gurus!
I am currently whipping out a bunch of lead sheets for a jazz vocal session I have coming up in a few weeks and I am making lead sheets in Finale so we can easily transpose parts later for the vocalist if the keys arent working. So, I am doing up one for 'Round Midnight at the moment and I want to use a 1st and 2nd ending but include the lyrics for both verses under each other. I can only seem to add one layer of lyrics, is there some trick to adding more?
THanks a ton for any insight.
nope just tried that, unfortunately everything gets applied to [Staff 1] which is what the "parts" are each made up from, the same [Staff 1], so while the Key Signature tool DOES work and does apply the new transposition to the chord changes as well, it does it to [Staff 1], the root data that each of the parts is made from (I re-used the [Staff 1] in each "part" so I could make one lead sheet and have a Bb, Eb, Concert and Bass Clef version of the same lead sheet made from [Staff 1])
Therefore if you use the Key Signature Tool, or edit in "Transposition" menu from the Staff Tool, it applies to the root data and affects all the parts together
Its like I feel I need to make multiple [Staff 1]'s to assign a unique one to each "part" but I dont want to enter data for each one and make a "score" with the same exact but transposed parts for each instrument. I just want one lead sheet "score" that I can use to make 4 transposed parts for
like seems i need
SCORE mad up of the following four "staves"Concert [Staff 1]
Bb part [Staff 2]
Eb part [Staff 3]
Bass part [Staff 4]
THEN: extract parts and have my four identical parts in their respective keys
But I feel thats a huge waste and redundant data since they are all 4 exactly the same except different transpositions. What if I want to make parts in all 12 keys for practice? What I want is ONE score leadsheet using one staff that I can then transpose into 4 or 12 or 97 parts each transposed
SCORE (concert part)
make parts with
CONCERT [Staff 1]
Bb [Staff 1] (transposed)
Eb [Staff 1] (transposed)
Bass Clef [Staff 1] (transposed)
