Different note counts in same chord

Recommended Posts

I need to play a whole note and a half note in the treble clef.


Example: Play an A with finger 1 (whole note) and an F with finger 4 (half note)



Then, while holding the A, release the F and play a G with finger 5


Crescendo will not allow notes of different duration to begin on the same beat on the same staff, or is there something I missed.

Hi, I'm not sure what you are trying to do there but writing music in crescendo allows you to enter notes of different duration in the same staff, however if you are creating Chords then yes you are not able to group notes with different tempo on the same chord. Also you may want to keep in mind that when creating chords you can only group notes depending on the tempo selected for each measure.

Keep in mind also that you can modify the measure of a note with dots and other music accidents, For more details you may access the user's guide by clicking on the help icon located at the upper right hand corner of the program's window (Questions Mark Icon for Windows and Lifesaver for Mac).
