Copying dynamics

You can copy dynamics to other rhythmic positions after they have been input. You can select dynamics on a single staff to copy to another single staff, or you can select dynamics across multiple staves to copy across the same number of staves.


  1. In Write mode, select the dynamics you want to copy.

    If you want to copy many dynamics or, for example, just gradual dynamics, you can use a filter.

  2. Press Ctrl/Cmd-C to copy the dynamics.
  3. Select the notehead at the rhythmic position to which you want to copy the dynamics.
  4. Press Ctrl/Cmd-V to paste the dynamics.


The selected dynamics are pasted to new rhythmic positions. If you copied dynamics to other staves at the same rhythmic position as the original dynamics, the dynamics on all staves are automatically linked.

If you selected multiple dynamics at different rhythmic positions, their new positions reflect their original rhythmic spacing.

  • You can also copy dynamics without adding them to your clipboard by selecting them and Alt-clicking each notehead to which you want to copy the selected dynamics.

  • If you want to copy dynamic phrases immediately after where they were originally input, you can select them and press R. If you select a single immediate dynamic, it is copied to the same position.
