Score cleanup 192 Figure Figure P10.23a and b. Trumpet notation before and after alteration Zoom in when inserting and positioning slurs. It's much easier. · Staccato marks and accents have been inserted in the brass parts ­ use Symbols attached to Notes in the Part box (Figure P10.24). Tip Figure Figure P10.24. Symbols attached to notes To enter multiple note symbols, select all the notes you wish to change and drag a sym- bol from the Part box to one of the notes. All the selected notes receive the same symbol. Change your version accordingly. A lot more can be done but by now I'm sure you've got the picture. We will now prepare the Trumpet 1 part. 1. In the Arrange window, select Track 1 and open the score. Use Page Edit view. Looks pretty good already doesn't it? However, if you read the previous chapter `Knowing the score,' you will remember the trumpet player complaining that his part had not been transposed. Our Trumpet 1 part is in Bb at the moment. It will have to be transposed up a tone for performance purposes. From the drop-down menu in the Score Parameter box, select Style > Trumpet in Bb (Figure P10.25). Tip 2. Figure 10.25. Transposing the Trumpet 1 part Hey presto! the Trumpet 1 score has been transposed to the key of C. 1. Save Song ­ compare with project10/10. Tip In real life, keep your players happy. Don't give them impossible things to play that may well sound good on a synthesizer. Use high notes sparingly (all the more effective). Big leaps, particularly on brass instruments are best avoided if you want a smooth session. Rule of thumb ­ keep it simple.
