Solo Violin ....
« on: June 29, 2020, 08:30:56 AM »
Question:

So I have in my score violin ensemble (Noteperformer) and I just want a solo violin in those measures; how do I indicate it in Finale?

I prefer to have an extra staff above the 1st violins that is called "solo violin".

are you using english text? or italian?

you could just indicate "1 vln solo" on the staff before the solo part, then "tutti" when the section starts to play again (this is why I prefer a separate staff for the solo instrument: it removes any doubt).
