Working with voices
|All the toolbars||v|
To add multiple different durations/rhythm sequences that play at the same time in a single staff, you can use multiple voices. For string instruments in an orchestra, you can also use this feature to write a divisi. It can also be used to write chords with different durations.
To add a second voice in your measure, click on the Voice button on the left the toolbars, then choose "Voice 2". Use the same button to toggle between voices and remove one voice. If you use keyboard shortcuts, you can also press v to toggle your voices.
